Copenhagen Light Festival combines the efforts of light artists, students, and commercial light specialists to present the poetic beauty of enhancing the Nordic winter darkness with Scandinavian light design. “The festival will be based on the idea of having light and darkness together. Lighting festivals can be very colourful and bright, but we’re seeing it as an opportunity to create something that’s more poetic. It’s about enhancing light by combining it with darkness,” says Anne Bay, director at Danish Lighting Centre, the non-profit organisation behind the festival.  “It’s embedded in the Danish lighting traditions.”
