Swan Song

Juha Rouhikoski’s Swan Song takes the viewer to the mythological world of majestic swans, the underworld of Tuonela in Finnish folklore and the world of Kalevala. It’s based on The Swan of Tuonela composed by Jean Sibelius. In the work, viewers step to the edge of the Tuonela stream to look at a dancer along a beam of light that dissects the air above them.

This virtual art piece is implemented with AR technology and published in the Tarina app.

The AR work was presented in Verkatehdas event centre December 7-11th, 2022 and in the Lux Helsinki light festival January 4-8th, 2023.

Verkatehdas Oy has supported the realisation of the work.
