December 2-7, 2014 Jardin du Palais Royal, France
Aurora borealis is the most spectacular and poetic natural light phenomena that occurs in the sky of northern hemisphere. Inspired by this magical appearance of energy and light in nature my wish was to create a bit of northern atmosphere in the beautiful surroundings of Jardin du Palais Royal. This work unites the Swedish presence of nature with the classic and historical Paris, as a symbol of cultures interacting and the beauty of friendship.
Project was initiated by the Embassy of Sweden in Paris and IKEA France for the occasion of Swedish Royal state visit to France in the beginning of December 2014.
My starting point was to apply IKEAs latest consumer LED technology into temporary outdoor light installation hosted by Le Centre des Monuments Nationaux. Project was realized in collaboration with Agency ubi bene
