The Hidden Gardens of Light event will be held from 30 November to 9 December 2012 in the courtyards of the Tori Quarter, which is located between Katariinankatu and Sofiankatu in Helsinki.
We are glad to have the opportunity to participate in the Hidden Gardens of Light event, which is coordinated by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) of Finland. The works Popu[light] and Nocturne featured at the event have been created through international collaboration between two schools, namely the Design Degree Programme of Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences and the College of Architecture and Design of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
The Popu[light] installation is a composition of space, light, sound and imagery that allows the city’s population to dwell in their dreams in the previously hidden gardens. Standing in the line of light, you look across the waters of a lake and see a birch grove on the other side – and lose the feeling of a cold and dark garden. You go back in your dreams to the light and warmth of the summer.
The nimbly moving lights of Nocturne feel like silent music that lulls the viewer into a relaxed mood. Light and movement create impressions of a starry sky, sunrays dancing on water, peace and joy. Nocturne has been created in cooperation with Cariitti Oy.
The Hidden Gardens of Light is an experience-rich lighting event held between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. daily from 30 November to 9 December 2012 in the courtyards of the Tori Quarter, which are normally hidden from view. The lights will be first lit on Friday 30 November 2012 at 5.30 p.m. The gateways from Sofiankatu, Aleksanterinkatu and Katariinankatu leading to the Quarter’s courtyards will also be lit. The Hidden Gardens of Light will also be held in Café Engel’s yard and in the yards of the Govinius Building. The event is part of the WDC Helsinki 2012 year’s programme.
