The Big Picture: Laser art show puts you inside a virtual flood

What do lasers have to do with an 1651 oil painting? Quite a lot, as it turns out: a new project called Water Light celebrates a Dutch museum’s acquisition of The Breach of St. Anthony’s Dike by making you feel like you’re inside the painting. Using the latest LED technology, creator Studio Roosegaarde says the spectacle gives viewers “the experience and perception… of a virtual flood.” While that sounds unpleasant, the images from the exhibition are stunning, with the light seeming to curve like water around Amsterdam’s Museum Square. If you’re lucky enough to be there, you can catch the show tonight after 10 pm, or lose yourself in the video below.
