FUUSIO Merges City Theatre and City Library in Oulu

News/press release

Light Artist Kari Kola engineers an artwork of light called FUUSIO (Fusion) for Valoa Oulu! -Light Festival on 20th — 29th November, 2015. The two significant cultural buildings in Oulu, City Theatre and City Library, are transformed into one unified ensemble of light art in which light responds to the movement of people.

In this piece, Kola uses strong colors and contrasts but its tempo is tranquil. The trees between the buildings are colored with static lights. A gentle, nearly ethereal ambient soundscape binds together the whole artwork. In addition to this, Kari Kola will illuminate the City Theatre tower with lighting depicting the Aurora Borealis. The light art ensemble is meditative by its nature.

FUUSIO can be experienced daily from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Valoa Oulu! -Light Festival.
