Daan Roosegaarde's Presence exhibition encourages visitors to make their mark

Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde has opened his first major solo museum show — an interactive experience meant to awaken its audience to human impact on the environment.

Staged by the Groninger Museum in Groningen, the Netherlands, Roosegaarde’s Presence exhibition takes the form of a sprawling, 800-metre-square installation of darkened rooms and phosphorescent light.

At every turn, museum visitors are encouraged to touch, move, push and hug objects in the space, and in doing so leave an imprint for those who come after.

Roosegaarde, whose work often focuses on the environment and sustainability, created the exhibition to make visitors aware of the traces they leave behind on their surroundings, and to make them feel empowered to act differently.
