…pass through the pedestrian subway, notice the trace you leave behind. Stop for a minute, watch and play. Rediscover your own shadow, - do like the kids, play shadow theater, become an illuminated star for an evening. Two people approaching from opposite directions will experience their light shadows melting together, disappearing into a sc-fi inspired intimacy for a few seconds before reproaching.
Strømmer is an unique installation, 27m2 of interactive LEDs provide light for each person passing by, the total energy consumption is smaller than 3 regular 60 w lightbulb. With an impressive lifespan when taken well care of by the inhagitants of Sandnes this is the light source for the future. With its analogue qualities the light is soft and friendly, triggered by passing humans, or doing its own organic life-like and mysterious behavior.
