Jenni Kääriäinen: a Shade

Address: Pohjoisesplanadi

Espa Stage will feature an installation by Jenni Kääriäinen. a Shade is a mosaic that is made up of thousands of anonymous x-rays. The work casts a shadow and dims the light. For Kääriäinen light means everything that makes our environment visible and causes changes within it. a Shade is about the mark left by light – a memory.

This installation was originally commissioned by Startup Sauna for the SLUSH 2014 event, and it was created as a communal art projected by volunteers at the event.

The music and sound design was composed by Aake Otsala.

Performance time: 5pm–10pm
