Sol Lumen is the name of the laser artwork linking De Uithof with the city centre as part of Utrecht University’s 375th anniversary celebrations.
"For the opening of the anniversary celebrations, Utrecht University commissioned Laserfabrik to create this unique work of art in the Netherlands. From 20 to 26 March, seven coloured laser beams will shone across three kilometres, linking Utrecht Science Park/De Uithof and the Utrecht city centre. The Sol Lumen laser installation symbolises the strong knowledge and cultural ties between Utrecht University and the city of Utrecht. The first artwork of its kind to be displayed in the Netherlands, the installation will be visible a considerable distance from the city. Sol Lumen is part of Utrecht University’s 375th anniversary celebrations."
