Light determines our perception of the visual space. Space as a concept in turn determines our understanding of the reality. Light adduces all the three dimensions of a space which helps us perceive our existence in a certain place. The consciousness of oneself as a part of a certain reality separates us from the animals. We are in a lit place therefore we are in touch with our humanity.

LIGHT SPACE EMOTION – explores the experience of light in a space. What is the practically intended ambience light’s relation with estheticed ligh? Is the ambient light intrinsically a premise which existence we understand just in a case of a power failure or are all the millions of fluorescent lights in our ceiling unconsciosly the world’s biggest meta-artwork? The mother work that enables all the other visual arts.

The exhibition is part of Alpo Nummelin’s diploma work at TAMK – Art & Media.

The work is dedicated to my mother and father.

Opening on Tuesday, 17.1. 6-8 pm. Welcome!
