The sunday challenge = what or who are you thankful for in your life
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm thankful for being a father
I always enjoy seeing children in their natural behaviour
Every new generation brings a change of the guards, it shows how relative life is

In case you wonder where the image was taken you can have a look at:
my latest video

Some explanation about this scene:
This season national TV program “Het Klokhuis” intended to pay attention to the ecological footprint. The city of Eindhoven’s yearly ligthfestival “Glow” thereafter decided to depict the footprint on a scale during the festival in November. At location Ketelhuisplein artist Hugo Vrijdag is going to colour the whole floor and surrounding buildings with flowers on Friday.

From the inside, the surrounding buildings and the windows of these houses colour green as well. One wide green valley. This is how Hugo Vrijdag visualizes The Dutch Footprint. A piece of light art of 5 hectares. Because that is the surface every Dutchman claims with our lifestyle. Distributed over the world population we can use a maximum of 1.6 hectares.

During GLOW 2021 are going to project that ambition, literally.
On the Ketelhuisplein, Hugo Vrijdag colours the entire floor and surrounding buildings with flowers. The surrounding buildings and the windows of these houses also turn green from the inside. A big green valley.

Artist Hugo Vrijdag visualizes the Dutch Footprint. A light artwork of 5 hectares. Because that is the surface that every Dutch person with our current lifestyle claims. Divided over the world population, we can use a maximum of 1.6 hectares.

During GLOW 2021 we project that ambition; literal. Het Klokhuis will be recording this project at GLOW to visualize the size of the current Dutch footprint. The TV program will use the images for its series devoted to the theme.

The Dutch footprint extends beyond the projection on Ketelhuisplein. The project started weeks before GLOW, in which more than 60 primary schools from Eindhoven took part. At school, the children drew and painted flowers, plants and insects. These works of art were digitized and processed into the projection on the Ketelhuisplein.

My goodness that young boy really catches your eye Luc. I bet if we were to see his face, it would be full of wonder at what he is seeing. Must say I love his gloves on a string ... makes me think of some of little ones in my classroom. Getting ready for recess was a full time job getting them ready to go out. Thanks for sharing. Charlie and enjoyed the video!

Enjoy every minute of being a father Luc, children grow up so quickly! I am so thankful for being able to spend so much time with young children in my classroom and watch then walk in the door that first day full of curiosity and eager to explore new things. For the most part just about all of them could not read but when they walked out ready for second grade, all of them could read, not all on the same level but each had made great progress. I found that very satisfying and made me proud of how hard they had worked. Children are amazing. :)
