Nordic Light Exhibition at Nordiska Museet


    • Circled disc at this end of the hall refer to the moon reflecting on the rippling water surface.
    • A fifty meter long semi-transparent fabric hangs from the ceiling continuing upside-down the zigzag design on the other half of the exhibition.
  • A zigzag-shaped wall creates individual spaces, each dedicated to an specificed era in the history of electrical lights.

What does it mean to live in a part of the world that has limited daylight during the winter and almost endless daylight during the summer? Nordic light was an exhibition that explores how light – whether from nature or man-made technology – has shaped us, and how we have shaped light.

An installation in the central Hall recreated the glowing iridescence of Northern lights, inspired by the oldest sources of light available – the moon and the sun. Nordic lamp designs designed over the past 100 years were exhibited in a visual timeline, showing how the design of lamps has changed in the Nordic region since the arrival of electricity. A part of the hall is dedicated to mesmerising wonder aurora borealis. Every twenty minutes, the lights of the north hall are faded down and beam of light recreating the colours of the Northern Lights.
