Re-opening – Perseption Studio

Konstfack’s Perception Studio has for almost two decades given courses in light, colour, visual perception and spatial experience, and is unique in its kind. After a couple of years of reduced operations, we now want to celebrate a fresh start with a vernissage.

During Konstfack Research Week on January 27-31, students examine various aspects of light, color and visual perception, which are also related to several of the major issues facing humanity now. The result is presented with several lighting installations in the Perception Studio and adjacent studios.

NOBEL WEEK LIGHTS STOCKHOLM – ljus i mörkret!

This week we have fantastic colour and light installations to enjoy in Stockholm – light in the dark! The light installations are switched on at around 15.30 and light up well into the evening on 5-13 December.

Nobel Week Lights is a new way to celebrate this year’s Nobel Prize in Stockholm. Several of the lighting installations installed around the city are inspired by the Nobel laureates’ discoveries.

The Royal Opera

With dance and music, we have offered community for 250 years. We want to continue to do that – even during this dark period. So instead of shutting down when all activities have now stopped – we light up our house as a symbol of brighter times. A time when we can meet again in a dark salong filled with opera and ballet.

The lighting installation is created by Patrik Becker, Lighting, Sound and Video Manager and Hans Håkansson Lighting Master at the Royal Opera.
