Istanbul / Turkey
I created my main piece, "Light Is Here", to Zorlu Center which includes four skyscrapers and a shopping mall. Zorlu Center is the second largest shopping center in Europe. "Light Is Here" required nearly 700 light fixtures for its production. I took my core crew from Finland. The technical team of the Istanbul Light Festival assisted in the construction of the artwork. The schedule was extremely tight, so I took a special task force with me whose proficiency I can count on 100 per cent.
This piece was located in an interesting and unique geographical setting - Istanbul is the only city in the world that stands on two continents. My work was viewed from both Europe and Asia.
