The purpose of the exhibition is to increase understanding of what light is and how it affects our perception of the outside world. This we want to do by making available pioneering lighting projects, installations and artworks by 16 Nordic artists, designers, architects and researchers – including Snøhetta, Finnish Vesa Honkonen, Norwegian Ellen Ruge, Swedish Svante Pettersson and Danish Astrid Krogh. Their projects are presented through large-scale installations in the exhibition hall itself and at Vandalorum’s inner courtyard. Several of the installations are created specifically for Vandalorum.

Most of us have colour preferences and we reflect those preferences in the clothes we wear, the colours of furniture, floors and walls in our homes. Interior designers love to tell us that the colour of our surroundings plays a big role in our emotions, our productivity and our personality type. And often they refer to research as the basis for these claims.
But what does science really say about how colours affect us? And do they have the same effect on all of us? Find out at Sciencenordic.com
