Horn of Plenty: Digital Mural by Arno Coenen
Measuring 36,000 feet, the digital mural projected on the walls of the De Markthal market in Rotterdam is the largest artwork in the Netherlands. It consists of more than 4,000 tiled pieces from which vibrant images of fruits, vegetables and other produce on sale at the market will be projected when it opens in October. You can see a 360° panorama view of the interior here.
You could just look at the wonderful, almost psychedelic picture for it’s beauty, but the reference to the ‘Horn of Plenty’ points out the miracle that food is there for you. It is a work with a spiritual, religious feel to it. However, its larger-than-life size is not a tale of religion; it’s about nature.
