Meri Ekola uses light as her main medium of expression. She is working in the installation context as well as in the wide field of performing arts. She holds a M.A. degree in lighting design from the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki. Currently she lives in Brussels.

I’m fascinated by the living environment viewed in scale of micro and macro organisms, the intertwined mechanisms and dependencies it is constituted of. I often take as a viewpoint the cognitive processes of human perception and the ability we have not only to react but also to reflect upon our surroundings. Based on these reflections I’m curious to build other existences, relationships and appearances than those visible and recognised by the rational mind.
