Mothership, Anymotion Productions and Video Agency have joined forces and created a light artwork that screams for world peace. Hundreds of drones have portrayed a dove of peace during a show that was secretly recorded in the middle of the night, near the iconic bridge De Hef in Rotterdam.
The performance with the title ‘ASAP’, which stands for ‘as soon as possible’ was directed by Andre Freysen and Felix Kops of Video Agency and flown by Anymotion Productions. With the drone show, the makers ask attention for world peace in a creative way. The performance shows how a dove of peace defecates on a war tank, which then dissolves and from the remains a flower arises that symbolizes new life. With this powerful statement, they show how the dove of peace, the international icon for peace, ultimately conquers all and provides new life.
A sign of peace
Jeroen Everaert (Mothership): “With this work of light art, I hope to encourage everyone. With a wink. Not heavy, but light. A message that gets through to everyone. With a dove of peace that everyone in the world recognizes as a sign of peace. The video features music by Rotterdam pianist Kevin van Genderen, among others.”
The action is an own production in cooperation of three parties: Mothership, Anymotion Productions and Video Agency. Concept developer in the arts Mothership is already also known for illuminated art like the last New Year’s Eve drone show and the show on 5 May 2020, when on Liberation Day they also put on a drone show to honor those who work day and night for the freedom and safety of others.
“Doing nothing was not an option. We wanted to help. Share our emotions and show how terrible we think this is. With the video, the companies want to send a message. And that message is short, but powerful: Peace as soon as possible”, concludes Jeroen Everaert.
