Juha Rouhikoski (FIN) – Swan Song

Event Introduction

Swan Song takes the viewer to the mythological world of majestic swans, the underworld of Tuonela in Finnish folklore as well as to the world of Jean Sibelius and Kalevala, the Finnish national epic.

In the work, viewers step to the edge of the Tuonela stream to look at a fragile being walking along a beam of light that dissects the air above them, trying to survive the dangers without falling to its death. 

Juha Rouhikoski is Artistic Director of Lux Helsinki and aims to offer viewers a combination of virtual digital art and real light art made possible by digital AR technology.
