Event description: 

Through his work Rune Nielsen seeks to develop a language of light – a dialogue between dynamic and interactive lighting designs and the users. Rune will talk about how lights and media can be carefully integrated into the architecture, along with the importance of a good dialogue with relevant stake holders.



Presented by:


Rune Nielsen
Co-Founder & Partner
Kollision


Rune is co-founder and partner of the design practice Kollision. He is an architect and holds a PhD, but refers to himself as an Interaction Designer. He is specialised in interactive exhibitions and media architecture projects that take the form of engaging and experience-oriented large-scale installations.

Rune has more than ten years’ experience in designing and leading projects in the field of dynamic lighting design and urban communication, among them the media facade of the Danish pavilion at EXPO 2010 in Shanghai, and the facade of the headquarters of The Confederation of Danish Industry in Copenhagen (2013). A very recent project involves two parallel media facades integrated into the Salling department stores in Aarhus and Aalborg in Denmark (2017).

Rune frequently gives talks about his activities with the Kollision team as well as about the research projects he has been involved in. He has served as an external examiner at a number of universities and at architecture and design schools, and has been a member of The Danish Art Community since 2006.
