European collaboration

Saturday, September 03, 2011

Science and art will be a theme for this year's festival, as three European artists each team up with a scientist to explore the scientific and aesthetic aspects of light. The collaborations are part of Lux Scientia, a major three-way trans-European artistic collaboration with light festivals in the medieval cities of Torun, Poland and Tallinn, Estonia.  The three artists - Simeon Nelson (UK), Dominik Lejman (Poland) and Leonardo Meigas (Estonia) - have each been commissioned to work with a scientist and create a work of art for the three festivals. The project has been funded by the European Commission's Culture Fund.
