6. Magical Garden
Especially for GLOW, the Finnish light artist Kari Kola has developed a 360-degrees light object titled ‘Magical Garden’. For this edition, he deliberately chose a bleak parking area. By using light art and soundscape - an analogy of sound and landscape indicating the acoustic environment - , he transforms the area into a magical wonderland. The green areas are highlighted and enhanced by this artist.
“I want to create as great a contrast as possible to the original state of this area in order to bring out a completely new environment”, says Kari Kola. Go ahead, enter the site and immerse yourself in the mystical atmosphere. This work of art will be integrated with the food court, which is also located here.
