This might seem to be some pagan worship, but no.
It is a Reflektor Light Art Festival!
Last weekend I went to experience this fantastic light art festival near my home. The route was a few kilometres and the crowd walked on pitch-dark routes in the middle of an old forest. But not scary though, there were a lot of families with kids and dogs :) Reflektor Light Festival originates from Denmark. In Copenhagen the festival was organized from 2016 to 2017, in Helsinki last autumn and now in cooperation with the City of Vantaa. The quality of mobile photos is not great, but just to give you an idea of this magical experience.
"In the Nordic countries, we share a certain sensitivity and aesthetics with regard to light and darkness - something that is deep within our culture and connected to the changing seasons. We use light art to create shared, yet intimate experiences for the widest audience, and showcase how light art in public spaces can transform familiar places into exploratory and sensual, multi-dimensional experience,.”- curator Christina Dvinge from Denmark.
The visual effects of this tunnel were flowing, and a space music filled the air.
The patterns and colors of this full moon were changing constantly.
"The power of light art is based on darkness, and Reflektor creates an interesting contrast between nature and the urban environment. Dark forest usually only gets its light from the starry sky, but with the light art, the atmosphere of familiar jogging landscapes becomes magical."
