New Light

“Lux Nova” translates from Latin as “new light” but it also refers specifically to the otherworldly light that is generated by stained glass windows. Recently, Roskilde Cathedral in Denmark commissioned SIIKU art studio to create the Lux Nova installation at the 900 year-old UNESCO World Heritage site. The work dramatically projected light from the grand windows of the church onto an aluminum circle in the public square, inviting passersby to experience the “divine” light. I haven’t been to Roskilde in decades, but I have fond memories of the ancient cathedral with its dozens of royal tombs and sarcophagi.
