Freiburg, 28.08.2023 (PresseBox) - It is probably one of Unna's most cozy places - the Westfriedhof. Every evening from September 9 to 24, this place will become a very special oasis in the middle of the city center: The city lights are coming and with them many light objects, projections and bright, beautiful illusions.

Old, gnarled trees line the West Cemetery. They are perfect for being bathed in colorful light. Spotlights and video projections breathe new life into them. The entire Westfriedhof area next to the Platz der Kulturen will be transformed into a light gallery with numerous exhibits that can be seen and, in some cases, heard. The luminous and beautiful installation for the classical piece "Für Elise" makes the music visible. In keeping with the rhythm and melody, 14 pyramids and eight cubes light up one after the other and together. DMX technology controls the light choreography. This is just one of many lighting scenarios created along the route.

During the walk, visitors are immersed from one fantasy world to the next. Light and shadow, optical illusions, a mystical light atmosphere, moving video projections and, above all, the three-dimensional light objects make this place at the Stadtlichtern so special.

"Visitors to the West Cemetery should forget time and place for a moment," says Art Director Wolfgang Flammersfeld. He designed the entire event.
The objects on display are sometimes made of metal, sometimes of polyethylene, sometimes of lengths of fabric and sometimes of natural or misappropriated materials. They all have one thing in common: they shine on their own or are atmospherically illuminated. Everything is "made in Unna" and travels from here throughout Germany and to Denmark from one event to the next. This season, Unna is the first stop on the illumination route. There is also a special feature this time: one of the light objects created by Wolfgang Flammersfeld has been "refined" by the globally active designer Axel Ketz.
