Trivselshagen in Sandane, Satellites

Satelites, public art in Sandane, Norway
by Kristin Sæterdal

Public art project at Trivselshagen Cultural Center, Sandane in Norway.
Satellites are the answer to themes suggested in the Public-art plan. It is the wish to strengthen the impulses from the outside world and to stimulate to creativity and curiosity.
Satellites make modern communication possible. In a Fjord like Sandane there are no horizon, one has to bend the neck and look up to see the sky where satellites circulate and send all the information you can ever ask for.
Tapestry is a reminder that our bodies are still tied to time and space while modern medias transcends this barrier.

Trivselshagen in Sandane is a multi-use Cultural Centre. I have chosen the curved monumental wall of the concert hall for this Public-art project. Satellites are the first thing a visitor will see as she enters the foyer.
