Forgotten. A dragon’s tale.

Lightfestival Ghent

CREATE.EU commissioned me to design and execute a unique light experience for the city of Ghent during their lightfestival.

With ‘Forgotten’ we’ve added an imaginary piece to the city’s legend: for fear that the dragon would reveal the secrets of the city, the inhabitants of Ghent locked the monster in the cellar of the belfry. For centuries, the dragon had been almost forgotten, until today. After nearly 500 years, the dragon woke up, ready to take revenge.

The show had over 835 000 unique visitors over the course of five days and was shared the most on social media during the Lightfestival of Ghent.

Forgotten got picked up for Leeds Light Night so I did it all over again in England.
