Light installation of Kärdla Powerstation in Hiiumaa island realized
where we illuminated a giant 40 meters high red chimney (1954)
for one night – the great community event Kärdla Cafes’ Day.
The building was built in 1950-ies, influenced by the pre-war architecture.The powerstation was closed in 1977 when the island was connected with the united energetic system of Estonia with the help of submarine cable.
