Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde recently unveiled the world’s largest lenticular print at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. Located at the airport’s Departure Hall 3, the 100+ meter (328 ft) long artwork is only 10 cm thick yet gives the impression of depth and dimensionality.
Together with a team of experts, Roosegaarde worked on a unique printing technology using lenses that produce perspective and movement effects when the work is observed from different angles. The 3D effect is enhanced by yellowish-white LED lamps embedded in the wall.
“Beyond” is not a straightforward aerial image but consists of various cloud dimensions. In the middle of the wall, for example, you can see the golden clouds that are characteristic of the famous Dutch Golden Age paintings. When walking up, you move through the more international clouds which you see when looking out of an airplane window.
