Yesterday Steinar Sekkingstad master student at Institute of Cultural Studies at the University of Bergen mailed me a draft of his analysis of the installation Adsonare a permanent sound installation for the new University building “Bygg for Biologiske Basalfag” made by Natasha Barrett. The analysis seems to be thorough and interesting and I’m looking forward to read it.

The installation seems to stirr some mixed reactions with some of the users of the building complaining about the noise. If you do a piece of public art in Bergen it’s always a good sign if it raises heated public debate and strong negative reactions. Ten years later the general public has grown fond of it and will fiercly resist any attempts at (re)moving it.

Bergen is a strange conservative city. There’s a saying that if you’ve done something twice in Bergen it has become a tradition.
