Light Weave
Keilaniemi metro station

Custom-made LED tube lights, stainless-steel wire, retainers, electric cord, power sources

A total of 280 LED tube lights have been hung from the ceiling of the cavern above the platform of a metro station. The extended three-dimensional structure is made of three equal sets of tube lights arranged at three different angles, connected together by thin stainless-steel wires. The black-painted ceiling of the cavern is invisible, and the composition formed by the brightly lit tubes seems to levitate in a dark void. People looking at the work while walking past or seated in a passing train experience it as a stream of constantly changing kinetic patterns.
