Academic lighting

This year has started with an interesting variety of projects with the new category of academic events. February saw the annual gala of Svenska Litteratursällskapet and last week we worked on the 375 anniversary festival of Helsinki University. Both events took place in the grand hall of the university's main building which is an ideal for projected video and light with its gypsum white surfaces and imposing Roman style architecture. 

Working with my VJ partner and colleague Paula Lehtonen we created a video and lighting designs that would enliven the different parts of the programmes and vary the moods in the space. We had the tech crew and equipment provided by Sound Engine and they made our task a lot easier with their professionalism.

These projects have added to crowing portfolio of projects in a great way and we're looking forward to working on more events in future.
