Concept Description

Runeberginkatu bridge is decorated with paintings. Lighting helps to enhance the art of Viva Grandlund. This gave birth to the idea of light snakes. Snakes are both technical supports for lighting fixtures and visual decorations. Snakes are often considered evil and frightening creatures. They represent shadows and darkness while light represents strength and hope.
