Universe by Robbert van der Horst

Universe is a research machine, an observatory, that rotates and from which we take in new perspectives on the environment. The outdoor work is next to the pond.

Universe is an existing work that Robbert will adapt especially for the Shadow Floriade and the Amstelpark.

Contemplatorium: area for unknown rituals by Rob Sweere

The Contemplatorium is a combination between sculpture, landscape design and experiential art that is modular and can continue to evolve and manifest itself in the natural environment of a park. The outdoor work is placed deep in the Amstelpark, next to the Amstel river, past the Stadshout Pavilion and next to the Vlindertuin.

Camera Obscura by Rick Abelen

The Camera Obscura is a darkened space where the outside world enters upside down through a hole in the wall. As a precursor to photography – but a technique where there is still a direct connection with the environment – the installation takes the form of a folding camera. The outdoor work stands near the conifer garden on the north side, next to the footpath, overlooking the pond. The pond plays a role as well: the reflection of the landscape on the water is part of the artwork.
