All around Antwerp there are pre WW1 forts to protect the city from invaders. Inbetween the forts lay smaller entrenchments and one is very close to where I live. The Germans attacked it in 1914 and when the Belgian forces could't hold it they blew it up. But the ruins are still there and even partly accessible.

Two "light artists" were invited by the city to organise a light spectacle in/around the ruins one weekend and I went to take a look.

I've visited the entrenchment many times, but going there at night for something like this was quite special.

Here's some impressions:

1: Main hall with a light sculpture



2: Same sculpture, as seen from the room behind



3: Back wall, lighted by the sculpture



4: Light projections on the outside



5: Fire in the hole



6: Light demo and a videographer 1



7: Light demo and a videographer 2


1, 2, 3: A7 + FE 28/2
4, 6, 7: A7 + FE 55/1.8
5: A7ii + OM Zuiko 135/2.8

These are great night scenes, Pieter!

Personally I am opting for the "raw" one (without art, but well): #3 - pretty spooky! Got more?

Thank you for sharing these!

Thanks gentlemen, and I also liked #3 a lot. But Harald, I couldn't have done #3 without the "art", normally it's pitch dark in that room (even during day time) and the light from the sculpture falling through the square hole in the wall (which can be seen in #1 and #2) gave it a special feeling leaving the outer sides of the room much darker. Normally the light is more balanced taking a very long exposure there (I've not tried that myself yet, but seen it from others).
