The lighting here is controlled by the position of the sun, the current temperature and movements on the bridge.

Visitors and the measured data steer the colours of the lamps through the spectra set up by Rolf Zavelberg. The bridge's lighting thus reflects the influences of man and nature: The industrial monument shines in different colours and colour combinations.


Rolf Zavelberg has revealed some of his thoughts on his work in this interview.

The video which can be seen below was recorded while working on the final adjustments for the installation. The  video is also available on Youku.
