About the artist

He writes stories that are adapted into films, with the props he designs taking center stage in the movies. He is a co-founder of the science centers The Discovery Factory (Eindhoven), The Discovery Station (Tilburg), and The Invention Factory (Breda). Over the years, Hugo Vrijdag has created artworks in public spaces and light installations for previous GLOW editions, including the projects ‘Birds’ and ‘Sunflowers for Van Gogh’. Characteristic of his work is the combination of narrative and technology.
