Photographer's Note

The vibrations of the Ypsilon Bridge, just on view in the right of the large sphere, as well as wind, river currents and passing people are sent to these two large metal spheres, one on each side of Drammenselva. From these spheres, called the River Harp, sound emerges in correspondence with Ypsilon. The sound consists of harmonies sung by a local choir. In this way the wind, the river, the walkway, the local culture, and the architecture is reflected, together with its inhabitants and visitors, in the surface of the spheres.

The story of the concept behind these installations goes thus:

Once upon a time it was common for us humans to sing to rivers, lakes and waterfalls. Those were the days when Nψkken, a male water spirit, was not the fearful character that lured folks to drowning with his beautiful music. The Ypsilon bridge is built like a giant harp, it will help us to sing once more to Drammenselva and restore harmony with Nψkken. If we approach him properly, maybe he will teach us to play so adeptly that the trees dance and waterfalls stop at the music.
