KATHMANDU INTERNATIONAL ART FESTIVAL (KIAF) 2012

JUHA ROUHIKOSKI, Finland


Artwork Brief:
 
Light-art work ”horizon” is a part of the ”horizon” –series. The series started in 2009 with ”red horizon” and was continued with ”blue horizon”.
 
 All around the world the natural light we experience is from the same light sources, the sun and the stars and yet its color and tone seem astonishing and pure experienced in new environments.
 
Environmental degradation and climate change are intimately connected with sunlight. It is the life source which keeps us alive but at the same time it is also capable of destroying all life on earth.

The artwork ”horizon” presents light as a source of life and hope. The work challenges the viewer to see beyond the limitation of eyesight, to see and feel the invisible light: to see the light of dreams.
The light space created by the artwork will be a space where the spectators are invited to decelerate and spend time. The permeating atmosphere of silence, light and color together with the spectators minds will be the mediums that create the whole.
