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.

 

 

Colourful plastics – without dyes

Long before humans figured out how to create colours, nature had already perfected the process — think stunning, bright butterfly wings of many different hues, for example.

Now scientists are tapping into those secrets to develop a more environmentally friendly way to make coloured plastics. Using structure — or the shapes and architectures of materials — rather than dyes, to produce colour.
