The Finnish artist Karri Kola uses light as her medium. This installation “Nordic Elements” was on show at Lumina Light Festival in 2014 in Cascais Portugal. She also produced a spectacular light display this year as part of Finland’s celebration of a centenary of independence on January 1st. And that’s about all I know. I’m not even sure Karri has one r or two and if she is a ‘she’. I do know that light shows can have extraordinary depth and power and this image only gives us a fraction of the experience. Still, it’s pretty good, isn’t it?
And if you’re stuck with what to write: put yourself on that road. You don’t know what the lights mean except that something is about to happen. Go through the five senses: what can you see, hear, smell, taste, touch? Write down a few words for each sense (and nothing is not an option). Then write for 10 minutes without stopping and see what comes.
