Apart from our day-to-day operation, Nipek  participates in community events to create lighting installations and light up festivals! We attempt to inspire and engage people of all ages to enjoy playing with light.

Fire Monkey

Arts Fission

Melbourne, Australia 9&10 December 2016


Fire Monkey is a collaborative dance creation between Melbourne and Singapore. Nipek was commissioned by Arts Fission to design the spatial and lighting installations for the site specific performance. The colorful strips made by community workshops were incorporated in the central sculptural installation representing a mystical fire.



Tawaramappu Water Park

Temporary Lighting Installation

2013 Hokkaido, Japan


The temporary lighting installation took place in August 2013 in a town called Nakashibetsu in northern island of Japan, Hokkaido.

Taking full advantage of the topographic characteristics of the site, the two special lighting features have been designed.

- Aurora Waterfall by the river

- Luminous Field around the sunken plaza

Together with the LED lighting installations, many lanterns crafted by the local community were displayed in the sunken plaza.

This illumination is planned to be installed annually with addition of area and lighting equipments each time.


2014 Winter Snow Festival

We were privileged to work with the supportive local community and the people of Shibetsu town again this year to light up the snow festival.

The small town in Hokkaido held the beautiful festival on 15th February 2014.

Countless candle lanterns decorated by children lit up the white snow field. In additions to the candles, the festival venue was lit up with warm incandescent lamps and projection of animated lighting.

2013 Summer Festival

Candle Lantern Making Workshop took place on 3rd and 4th August at Salmon Park in Shibetsu, Hokkaido. The event was organized as part of the town’s summer festival.

Participants drew 240 salmons.

In the evening of the 4th, the candle lanterns were lit up in a form of a gigantic luminous salmon!


2012 Winter Snow Festival

The snow festival used to be lit by overly bright stadium lighting.

In 2012, Nipek proposed switching off the stadium lights and instead using candles and localized lighting to light up the snow.

A workshop was held during daytime at the festival venue and children created candle lanterns which they lit up in the evening during the event.
