Art in Utleira Kindergarten

'Er jorda skakk?'. Artists: Bjørg Nyjordet & Magnar Gilberg 2009. Art consultant: Merete Morgenstierne.

On an elevated area at Utleira kindergarten, the couple Bjørg Nyjordet and Magnar Gilberg have installed a 3 m high sphere made from wood lamellas. The sphere ‘glides’ half a metre above the ground on a sharp metal edge and the airy character is reinforced by the use of underneath lighting. A light source has also been installed inside the sphere, and light is emitted through the openings in the construction.
