Oslo, Norway: Mounting of “epp”

From the 14.-17. of September 2010 we installed the 15 parasitic organisms on wall #4 at the IFI2 building of the University of Oslo.
We saw the building the first time, after we planned and produced the project with sketches of the building for 3 years. The architects of IFI2 combined cool and warm materials (metal, glas, oak and bricks) and merged architecture and nature. The building is integrated in a very small gap between older buildings of the campus.

We also saw the pattern in the wall structure the first time, since it was produced with our instructions by a special company in March 2010. Some leveling and cleaning of the vylene was necessary. Finally the mounting of the circuit boards was done with the help of specialists and a mobile stage. We had to wear helmets, working shoes and some plastic slippers to enter the building, which is still under construction.

We would like to thank the Staatsbygg office (Tone Westby), Hilmatis (Tommy Hilstrom) and Peter for their respectful and professional help.
