Colour, contrast and texture illuminate Helsinki landmarks and parks when light designer Mikki Kunttu and his colleagues are given free rein.
Lighting designer Mikki Kunttu, who gained the international spotlight with his work on the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki, adds colour and brightness to the Finnish capital with Season of Light until January 9, 2011. He is joined by other designers and performers from Finland, Sweden, Germany and USA.
Shows take place at seven locations, six of which are outdoors, from Esplanade Park to Senate Square to the Parliament building. If you can’t get to Helsinki to see the light, gaze upon our slideshow.
