Svante Pettersson 

– reflects upon the things that have always attracted people to move to cities.

Color trip 800

The installation Color Trip by lighting designer Svante Pettersson reflects upon the things that have always attracted people to move to cities. The freedom to think, speak and be whom you want. To get to a safe haven. To get to choose to be alone, completely anonymous, yet still surrounded by people – or to seek a new, self-selected community. It is about how we travel there, but also about how to retrospectively recall our journey.

Svante Pettersson has created a passage that illustrates this type of transformation. The passage moves between the more intellectual case studies in the project rooms and the artistic works of Färgfabrikens main hall. His means of expression is the interaction between the surface colours and artificial light, which is such an important part of our urban environment.
