Kuusankoski / Finland
I executed an ensemble of light art HISTORIA (History) in Kuusankoski park area by the Kymijoki river to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Kuusankoski House. The work of art focused on three locations: Kuusankoski House, the four concrete high-voltage powerline masts and Kymijoki river bank area. Through this ensemble of light art, each of the locations mirrored different eras and underline some essential parts in the history of Kuusankoski.
One of my favorite themes is to combine nature and man-made constructions with light. Modern architecture meets nature’s own architecture in an interesting way in Kuusankoski. The settlement has been built by the river and in many ways the residents have been dependent on this water. That’s why I wanted to entwine the river into this ensemble and through it, narrate the ancient history of the area.
