KASVU (GROWTH) lightwork 20.-22.11.

At SOK-house, Minna Canthin katu 4

Lightwork embodies growth formed from shoots to fruits and their fall. At the same time, seasonal variations, harvesting and the vanishing nature are presented, but also its recidiveness. The work is presentable and easy to understand. Large scale, intense colours and patterns create an impressive work. Savonia AMK - Savonia University of Applied Sciences students design and implement the light mixture as part of lighting design training.
