2002. Commission – Vågsbygd secondary school, Kristiansand, Norway

Two identical, flat steel arches merge to become one spatial form. The vertical arch is in dialogue with distant surfaces: school, apartment blocks, shopping centre, trees and sky. The horizontal arch contacts passers-by: has human scale, tangible, seeks ground level.

The arches appear unstable however reciprocally support each other.
Although simple, the sculpture changes in character and expression as one walks around it.
