Forces of Light Festival in Helsinki

Our fine art students are an active part of the fifteenth Forces of Light Festival in Helsinki November 11-15.

"Climate change and it’s prevention have created a new challenge for a light event to exist. What is the role and responsibility of a light event in the energy consumption? Is the new technology the answer for saving energy in the future? Can an artist have an influence and participate on the discussion about climate change with his/her work?"

Jukka Silokunnas is one of the School of Art and Media students present at the festival with his installation "Youth Stoppers". You can find "Youth stoppers" at Telekkakatu 8, and read more about the installation in English in Jukka Silokunnas' blog.
