Lumen is a festival that showcases light based new media, media art, and projection based installations. This event invites citizens to explore the city through a new lens - one that illuminates Waterloo through art and technology.


ENTZÜNDEN is transformation through ignition.

The work visualizes our capacity to reflect and reinvent in an abstract visualization on themes of historical context, deconstruction, and regrowth. Augmenting reality using projected light and real-time computer graphics, the project transforms the 3000 sq/ft facade of the Uptown Parkade. With ENTZÜNDEN, the artist hopes to stimulate imagination, a desire for creative expression, and hope for a bright future within the viewer.

This installation is heavily influenced by designer and futurist Syd Mead, and animators O.Fischinger, and S.Pagano. Roy C Anthony's projection artworks are literal interpretations of themes and ideas manifested into composited abstractions of form, time, and dimension.

Installation sponsored by: Christie

Location: Waterloo Public Square & Parkade

With arts, culture and heritage being of such importance to our city's livability, we have developed our culture plan with the core vision to: break down barriers to cultural activities and engagement at the city and within the community; identify opportunities and bring ideas, people, and resources together to help make great things happen; encourage creativity and creative expression in all areas of community life. Go out and explore arts, culture, and heritage in Waterloo!
