Luminous, a light art ensemble includes six pieces of light art which will be situated at different locations in Finland during the jubilee year of Finnish independence in 2017. The local landmarks, the diversity of nature and historical sites are to be underlined in an exceptional manner.
Luminous is kindled in Töölönlahti Bay in Helsinki by an artwork of light in the Opening Ceremony of the jubilee year. The climax of the series of light art will take place on the week of Finland’s Independence Day. In December 2017, the artworks are lit one by one in Savonlinna, Tampere, Oulu, Saana-fell in Kilpisjärvi, and Turku, which will host a massive piece of light art in Turku Castle and Castle Park.
Valoparta Ltd and Light Artist Kari Kola organize the design, production and realization of the whole light ensemble.
