“Days to remember”

Our work “Days to remember” is a sundial. A mirror at the top of the sculpture reflects a point of light on the row of buildings in shadow across the way. As the day progresses, the reflection moves across the façade and at precisely noon (winter time) or one p.m. (summer time) the reflection lands squarely on the giant wall clock on the building. The daily movement of the reflection across the building’s façade visualizes how the earth orbits the sun, giving us day and night and seasons, the foundation of our perception of time. It reminds us that all life, including our own, is subject to and dependent on this greater context – the solar system and its laws. 3. Summer or winter time? Does the sun cross the sky from east to west? Are we standing still on the square watching the reflection move across the façade, or is it the façade and ourselves that are moving? What direction does your bedroom face?

In our public art works in schoolyards, playgrounds and parks, we often use nature as our theme. We want to awaken people’s curiosity about the diversity and aesthetics of nature, and thereby an interest in our environment. Wood, iron and stone are the materials we use most often.
