A series of light interventions in Fredrikstad beginning in the early hours of the night and ending late on the next night on December 3. Four rhythmically illuminating light towers will be installed at different locations along the river at different times throughout the day. The project is a collaboration between Jakob Oredsson and scenography students at the NTA.
“This is a project for Fredrikstad. A project which celebrates the presence of the academy in the city in terms of the past, the present and the future. It will emphasise the ongoing relationship between the academy and the city. The project accentuates characteristics and qualities of the city, simultaneously giving and taking, paying tribute to and challenging the existing. Temporary Beacons will add one more story to the memories of the relationship between Fredrikstad and the NTA.” Jakob Oredsson
The project explores the space generating qualities of light and how it influences the spatiotemporal navigation of the cities inhabitants. Each intervention will be a temporary beacon, describing the passing of time through its movement and transformation.
