Valontaivuttajat (Light Benders) is a light art collective concentrating on light painting photography and its continuous development. Apart from its basic competence, light painting, the group makes light installations such as projection mapping, light sculptures and interactive light works. In Finland, Valontaivuttajat is a pioneering group within the light art form called light painting, whose members have developed numerous light painting techniques and styles that are now used all over the world. The light painting techniques that Valontaivuttajat represents span from light topography creating three-dimensional spaces to light painting scanning and even landscape scanning taking place inside a plastic bag.
Valontaivuttajat are: Jukka Laine, Janne Parviainen, Jani Parviainen, Hannu Huhtamo, Juha Forsander, Jenni Granqvist, Jannis Sid, Katerina Dotneboya, Lauri Laurén, Ville Olaskari, Markus Lohikoski and Olli Lehtinen.
In the Valontaivuttajat exhibition at the Vaasa City Art Gallery, a broad spectrum of light art photography will be displayed, from traditional light painting to landscape scanning and light painting portraits carried out on a scanner. In the exhibition, the spectrum of light art is completed with light sculptures made with an El wire light cable and plexi, interactive video and light works, as well as works of projection mapping.
