Rotterdam Unlimited was extra special this year! Not only due to the tropical temperatures, but also thanks to the festive flags that graced the city.
Through a technique called ‘glitch’ images of icons of the city of Rotterdam and previous editions of RU are distorted, which causes for a colorful effect. This is exactly the effect that Rotterdam Unlimited has on the city: it temporarily ‘takes over’ the city and transforms it with a colorful brushstroke. The city is still recognizable (like the images of the icons), but has been temporarily taken over with color and warmth.
Did you miss out on the flags? Do not worry, because next year they will shine again during the next edition of RU!
The colorful gems are designed by Emma van Beek and Natasa Heydra. In collaboration with Rotterdam Festivals and Rotterdam Unlimited, Threesome developed the city dressing for Robin Rotterdam Unlimited 2014. Threesome is an internship project by Mothership in cooperation with Rotterdam University.
