Light installation by Matthias Oostrik in Assen

Using the “De Maten” railway underpass in the Dutch city of Assen is a unique experience. The light installation called Een Spoor van Water—A Trail of Water—by the artist Matthias Oostrik lights up every time a train passes overhead and symbolically connects to the city’s waterways. An artistic expression that helps to pre-empt the atmosphere of a non-place often associated with these infrastructures.
