Eero Erkamo

  • Lighting & space designer
  • Helsinki, Finland

From theatre to installations and from dance to chamber opera, video and exhibition/museum design.

For me light is a way of looking things. I have been working as a dramaturgist of light & space in the projects where I have been involved – in theatre projects, dance productions and operas. In recent years I have been also working with architectural design companies – doing designs for permanent installations like lighting in museums and architectural lighting.
