People Power invites people to observe and play with light together: when you step on the scales, the installation comes to life. The greater the number of people on the scales, the more intense the colour of the light becomes – this is people power in action! The scales control three colours of light: red, green and blue. The effect reaches its peak when the colours combine to form a bright white light.
The installation is created by 60 individually controlled lamps and three accurate yet durable industrial scales. The specially chosen materials represent a return to the basics, with halogen lamps, handmade coloured glass and sturdy wooden boxes.
Petri Tuhkanen’s interactive installation provides a sense of playfulness and shared experiences along the official Lux Helsinki route. Everyone is welcome to bring this art to life!
