A glowing tribute
Designer Daan Roosegaarde's version of The Starry Night
You can now get inside one of Vincent van Gogh’s paintings. Designer Daan Roosegaarde has created a bike path with 50,000 glow-in-the dark “stones” that evokes The Starry Night. Located in Nuenen, in the Netherlands, where the post-impressionist artist lived and worked from 1883 to 1885, the path commemorates the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death in 1890. The installation is solar-powered, but also has LED lights for cloudy days when there’s little sun for powering up. The path is one kilometre long and part of the 335-kilometre Van Gogh Cycle Route that connects five Van Gogh heritage sites.
