In light of current events

RGB color and ambient light sensors, light emitting wall, glass channels 


RGB color and ambient light sensors detecting the incoming light from one point in the sky, were placed on top floor of the building and timed to work one at the time. A light emitting wall is translating the incoming data into temporally adjusting tones and intensities of light. During day time the light tunes to surrounding conditions of light and during the dark hours the data recorded of each day runs in shortened loops.

The work is located inside the auditorium volume that is enveloped with semitransparent glass. The light emitting wall runs along the curved auditorium wall facing toward the foyer space.


The work is realized in co-operation with White Arkitekter AB / Fredrik Mats Nilsson for Uppsala Akademiska Sjukhuset.

Electric technician Gregoire Rousseau, programming Eetu Huhtala, lighting entrepreneur SAAS Instruments.

Curator Lotta Mossum, commissioner Eva Rosengren / Uppsala Region, Kultur och bildning.

Winner of invitational competition.

It´s a silent agent doing its thing

2016 | Rocks, soundless cracking agent, sound of a stone splitting, building materials from location and from studio practise


The work makes use of soundless cracking agent, an expansive mortar, that was developed for splitting rock and concrete in urban densely built areas without any noise or vibration. The cracking is a result of pressure created by the expanding agent. In the installation the moment when the stones crack is unpredictable. Whereas the new, silent and unobtrusive method improves efficiency in urban construction, in the exhibited piece it works in the opposite direction. The time in the installation makes no concession to the gallery’s opening hours neither to the stuff or viewer’s schedules. The stones are cracking in their own time.
