Successful JTH-exhibitions during Nobel Week Lights

Nobel Week Lights festival during Nobel week

Lighting Design students' installation "Perspective" from Nobel Week Lights.

Two installations are included during Nobel Week Lights created by students from the Lighting Design at the School of Engineering (JTH) at Jönköping University (JU).

Nobel Week Lights is a light festival in Stockholm 3-11 December which recognizes Nobel laureates over the years and their achievements.

Among the 22 light installations are the contributions "Perspective" and "Divina Proportione Louise" from JTH students. Both with connections to Louise Glück, Nobel laureate in literature 2020.

Comprehensive installation

The students say that it was cold and a lot of work rigging the light installations, but that it went well. "Perspective" is a comprehensive installation with over 65 luminaires and many details to consider, everything from programming to theft protection.

"The whole team worked incredibly well and we were very busy. It was lucky that we had our incredible teachers, Johan Röklander and Mikael Petersson with us. They struggled with incredible solution-oriented energy all weekend," says Sofia C Lindén, student and project manager for the "Perspective" installation.

Positive response

Already on the first evening, there were hundreds of visitors who wandered through the sculpture park at the Moderna Museet, where "Perspective" can be viewed. The JTH students have received a positive response both from visitors and the organizers of Nobel Week Lights.During the week, tens of thousands of visitors are expected to walk through the installation and experience the students' interpretation of Louise Glück's poems. Philip Nilsson, who also studies the Lighting Design program at JTH, is exhibiting the light sculpture "Divina Proportione Louise" on his own at Sergels Torg alongside "Perspective".
