Meri Ekola is a Finnish lighting designer who currently lives in Brussels. She received her M.A. in lighting design from the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki, in Finland. She has gained experience by working both in the wide field of performing arts and architectural lighting design. In each production she seeks to find a specific role for lighting and use it as an expressive medium.
I am attracted by light as an expressive medium because of its dramatic potential. With my work I wish to generate unique aesthetic experiences in people’s minds and a strong feeling of presence in the moment.
