SPOTTED in The Hague: the sunset of Design Art Technology teacher Mike Rijnierse

Mike Rijnierse, teacher at the bachelor Design Art Technology, makes the experience of the sunset extra special, with his giant six-metre-high blow-up artwork Sunset in the Hague. From 6 to 9 October you are welcome to walk by and experience its glow.

Sunset in the Hague

Sunset in the Hague is one of Rijnierse’s latest works, developed with Ludmila Rodrigues, as a light monument for the Zuidkolk in Delft. Sunset explores our relationship with the phenomenon of the sunset, its radiance and the perception of the horizon.
