ARCTIC is an audio-visual installation commissioned by Westergas.

The Gashouder District once was the place that supplied the city of Amsterdam with light and heat. It was the heart of a network that fed burning lanterns alongside the city streets. As an ode to this glowing image, Lumus Instruments bring life to the artwork Arctic; a warm oasis during the cold and dark Dutch winter.

The work uses sixty-four dynamic light sources, spread along the contour of a pond that once was a gasholder. Together with multiple speakers, an audio-visual composition plays in this elusive place that symbolises the story of Westergas.

The audio-visual composition abstractly synthesises the elements of gas, fire, electricity using spatial light and sound. These elements are central to our method for making our living environments habitable. We believe that it's important to find the wisdom in how we apply technology for building a better future. An important shift in technology took place at Westergas, and sustainability became core to the vision of the district. It's a hopeful story about how our city became more habitable and sustainable. It's a story that deserves some attention to remind us about the progress that we made, although there is still a long way to go.
