A subtle hypnotic line on a spatial sound composition vibrates and transforms along the platform.

Lijn – Delft is an audiovisual installation created specifically for Delft’s new underground train station. It is a subtle but hypnotic work that consists of a 100-meter-long projected line that vibrates and transforms in relation to a spatial sound composition. The projection realised by lasers takes place on the wall opposite the platform whereby the sound moves across the entire width of the projection.

The work can be seen every day from 5:30 pm to 12:30 am, until Sunday 19 February.
