Anthropocene the new theme for light-art festival Fjord Oslo

On 6 November, 8 new light-based installations from an international roster of artists will flicker into life on the Oslo waterfront, each one a response to the curatorial theme – the Anthropocene. Through light and colour, projection-mapping and movement, these visionary works reflect on the relationship between humanity and the natural world, while also offering viewers a powerful, positive – and free – experience of art.


Co-founder of the festival Anastasia Isachsen will also contribute a new commission, Monad.
