“ The night time at Kivinokka to me provides a unique opportunity to experience new sensibilities towards the nuances and the qualities of the darkness. With the piece Lights of Helsinki I frame the natural light and darkness of Kivinokka. Set in darkness on the shoreline of the beach a number of light frames will call upon the audience to reflect on the ambiguous correlation between light and darkness – and between urban centre and urban periphery.”

Finnish lighting designer Matti Jykylä works with the materiality of light and darkness. He gets his inspiration from physics, comics and daylight phenomena which has resulted in numerous light art projects exploring the attributes of light. Matti has a background in lighting design, curating and
producing light and video art.
