The concept as was written by the group:

“The Mill is reawakening. The water falling under the bridge is once again churning its power to bring Stampens Kvarn back to life. Once past The Mill, this energy fades, moving downstream under the second bridge and back to sleep”.

The Waterfall: this must be the main focal point and the place from where the energy is being generated. The idea was to allow red heat to emanate from this area.

The River: the energy which is emitted from the waterfall reduces when the distance increases. We reproduced this effect underwater, using several colors.

The Underpass: at this point the heat disappears and cools down. We underlined this effect by means of a small amount of blue light.

The Mill: to enhance the image, and draw a contrast between the water and the waterside façade of The Mill, we used only light from behind the windows.
