In between the blues

In between the blues (Sinisten välissä) is about the colours we see between two shades of blue, those of the sky and sea. Around the clock, every day, a huge range of colours meet on the horizon.

For this work, five distant locations from around the globe were chosen at which these two blues meet in utterly different environments. The work projects these encounters in the form of coloured light. Its rhythm is set by the solar cycle of the chosen locations at this time of year. Each cycle is scaled down to five minutes.

The five locations chosen are Svalbard in Norway; Korppoo in Finland; Santiago in Cape Verde; Tasmania off the coast of mainland Australia; and Antarctica.

This work formed part of the Lux IN exhibition held at the Cable Factory during 2014 Lux Helsinki festival, and was presented in 2015 in a new environment.
