Temperature Tuning (for Moss)

17. Jan - 21. Mar 2020

Temperature Tuning (for Moss) is a new light work developed by Jakob Oredsson. The work consists of three continuously changing horizontal fields of light. Each field of light has a color temperature gradient, from vibrant hot red, to crisp white, to a deep cold blue. The fields are slowly transforming through varying degrees of brightness and rhythm. In relationship with its surroundings the work acts as a thermometer of the already existing color temperature spectrum in the railway and harbor area, as well as the sky. The work exists in symbiosis and solidarity with the given context. Temperature Tuning (for Moss) is simultaneously measuring and being measured, tuning and being tuned.

The light installation was created for the darkest time of the year and brightens up Værlegata street by Moss train station. Every day until March 31 it is available from sundown until 10 pm. Temperature Tuning (for Moss) is presented on the three 50 meter long panels on the spunt wall and can be seen from many places throughout the area, both by pedestrians and from cars.

Oredsson was invited to create a piece for the spunt wall by Galleri F 15 in collaboration with Bane NOR and is one of a series of art installations in an ongoing project which started in 2019. For MOMENTUM10 – The Emotional Exhibition Pauline Fondevila created a series of illustrations for the wall, connecting it to her work exhibited in Galleri F 15 and Momentum kunsthall. Next up is artist and journalist Charlotte Thiis-Evensen who has been invited to create an art installation for the wall companioning her exhibition Something has to be done opening in June 2020.
