Säde award for best lighting design 2013 goes to Minna Tiikkkainen for her lighting design in GRIND

Säde award for best lighting design 2013 goes to Minna Tiikkkainen for her lighting design in GRIND. The jury’s motivation:

”The amazing visuality in GRIND to a large extent plays with the intensity of light and its discrete shifts, as well as with total darkness. The artistic team of three persons have managed to create a rare suppleness in the expressions of movement, light and sound and the performance becomes an experience of a state of trance. It shoots straight into the marrow and creates a world with its own set of laws, that captivate and enchant. It brilliantly plays with our vision, it confuses and creates puzzling after-images for both the eye and the mind. Tiikkainens work with the light is utmost precise, and the final result turns into a unique all encompassing work of art – both visually and rhythmically. ”
