“Transition mirrors” draws attention to the relationship between body and space, art and context, by working within the context of existing historical, architectural and social elements of the Frøyland school very much informed by a site visit in August 2017. It is made on stainless steel and sculptural mirrors that reflect and refract light from the artwork itself and the surroundings, creating thus an immersive environment which engage and challenge our perception of space.
The artwork expresses the uniqueness of the Jæren landscape and display a portion of the spectrum’s transition from shorter to longer wavelengths demonstrating thus the power of light in its relationship with site and setting. These works shall offer an environment for learning, promote respect and exchange of knowledge and interests.
The project was very successful thanks to the team as well. Together with the art project, we have also created a dissemination plan of the art project inspired by Dewey's philosophy - book "Art as experience". I think it is important to think about dissemination not only as a description of the background of artwork, but also how can we stimulate "aesthetic experiences" in children and young people.
The title of the works as the transition from long/ short wavelengths also symbolizes the transition pupils undergo as they pass through their education in the school.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
