Nanni Vapaavuori is a lighting designer and artist-researcher whose practice often relates to the surrounding space and location. Her approach to lighting design is both concrete and tactile, working in direct hands-on collaboration with the materials. She’s interested in questions of attention and intention, and the practices and possibilities of lighting design at the edges of the visual register. She is currently a doctoral candidate at the Performing Arts Research Centre (Tutke) at the Uniarts Helsinki.
