Light sculptures in Helsinki

In December 2016, there was a possibility to enjoy the stunning exhibition ‘They were here’ in Helsinki. Helsinki City Museum at Aleksanterinkatu 16 arranged this awesome installation of light sculptures of historic characters created by Alexander Reichstein. His light sculptures, which he created, were human size profiles, which glowed in UV light. These sculptures he made of multiple layers of hand-worked, 2–4 mm thick steel wire, which are galvanized and finally he finished them with a specialist paint making them to glow in UV light.

Earlier these sculptures have been seen in January 2016 Lux Helsinki festival. When looking at my photos at home, after shooting them, I noticed that best photos I shot in the dark backyard of the museum. I was afraid how I manage my freehand shooting, because when focusing the target, I barely could not see it.

Some of my text are quoted and adapted from Helsinki museum’s page. BTW, the building of Helsinki City Museum was built in 1757.

En español:

Esculturas de luz en Helsinki

En diciembre de 2016, la gente hubo la posibilidad de disfrutar de la impresionante exposición ‘Ellos estuvieron aquí’ en Helsinki. El Museo de la Ciudad de Helsinki en Aleksanterinkatu 16 organizó esta impresionante instalación de esculturas de luz de personajes históricos creados por Alexander Reichstein. Sus esculturas de luz, que creó, eran perfiles de tamaño humano, que tuvieron un efecto brillante a la luz UV. Estas esculturas hechas de varias capas de alambre de acero trabajado a mano, 2-4 mm de espesor, que son galvanizados y, finalmente, los terminó con una pintura especializada que los hacen brillar a la luz UV.

Anteriormente estas esculturas se han visto en enero de 2016 en el festival de Fiesta de las Luces de Helsinki. Al mirar mis fotos en casa, después de sacarlas, noté que las mejores las fotos que saqué son aquellas que saqué en el patio oscuro trasero del museo. Tenía miedo de cómo manejé mis tiros a mano libre, porque al enfocar el objetivo, apenas no podía verlos.

Algunos de mis textos son citados y adaptados de la página del museo de Helsinki. Por cierto, el edificio del Museo de la Ciudad de Helsinki fue construido en 1757.

Sculptures de lumière à Helsinki

En décembre 2016, il y avait la possibilité de profiter de l’exposition étonnante ‘Ils étaient ici’ à Helsinki.Musée de la ville d’Helsinki à Aleksanterinkatu 16 a organisé cette installation impressionnante de sculptures lumineuses de personnages historiques créés par Alexander Reichstein. Ses sculptures lumineuses, qu’il a créées, étaient des profils de taille humaine, qui brillaient à la lumière UV. Ces sculptures, il a fait de plusieurs couches de fils d’acier travaillés à la main, 2-4 mm d’épaisseur, qui sont galvanisés et finalement il les a finis avec une peinture spéciale qui les font briller à la lumière UV.

Plus tôt ces sculptures ont été vus en Janvier 2016 au Spectacle des Lumières d’Helsinki. En regardant mes photos chez nous, après les avoir photographiés, j’ai remarqué que les meilleures photos que j’ai prises dans la cour sombre du musée. J’avais peur de savoir comment j’ai réussi avec mes photos que j’ai pris à main levée, car quand je me concentrais sur la cible, je ne pouvais pas les voir.

Certains de mes textes sont cités et adaptés de la page du Musée de la ville d’Helsinki. À propos, le bâtiment du Musée de la ville d’Helsinki a été construit en 1757.

Esculturas de luz em Helsínquia

Em dezembro de 2016, houve a possibilidade de desfrutar da impressionante exposição ‘Eles estavam aqui’ em Helsínquia. O museu da Cidade de Helsínquia em Aleksanterinkatu 16 organizou esta incrível instalação de esculturas de luz de personagens históricos criado por Alexander Reichstein. As suas esculturas de luz, que ele criou, eram perfis de tamano humana, que brilhavam sob luz UV. Estas esculturas que ele fazia de várias camadas de mão-trabalhou, 2-4 mm de espessura fio de aço, que são galvanizados e, finalmente, ele terminou-las com uma pintura especializada torná-las a brilhar sob luz UV.

Anteriormente estas esculturas têm sido em janeiro de 2016, no Festival das Luzes em Helsínquia. Ao olhar minhas fotos em casa, depois de tirar fotos, eu notei que as melhores fotos que eu tirei no quintal escuro,do museu. Eu estava com medo como eu manejei os meus tiros à mão livre, porque quando focando ao alvo, eu mal não podia vê-los.

      I am glad that You loved my post and its photos. It was a great experience to see all these art pieces. Today we have in Helsinki -20℃, but due to wind the real feel is -25℃. I wish that Your phone also shows these temperature / real feel, because if the cold weather reaches Your hometown, so You can notice both. 🙂 Thank You.

  42. So glad to have found your blog. I am 70 years old and hoping to take my first trip to Finland (from Canada) this year, to find out more about my roots and my family. Looking at your images has really helped me understand more about what I might be seeing.

    • Hello Terry.

      I am two years older than You are. 🙂 I am glad that You visited my site and can find photos showing my beautiful country. Are You looking some special place, because it might be possible that I have photos from it? You are welcome to visit here, hopefully this year.

      Have a good day!

      BTW, I found Your art in Internet – gorgeous art works. I loved for example “On The Lookout” very much. It was impossible to comment, because I am not using Facebook.
