deflection: they say it's an object,
we think it's a trick

Public intervention,
Tromsø, NO

This piece is placed in a jetty in central Tromsø, where the main network of optical ber cables are joined underground inside big metal pipes, being one of the central points for a system connecting the entire town.

Adopting a typical industrial element - the steel pipe -, the object resembles an optical instrument, suggesting a possible human interaction at rst, but on a closer look, it is has no direct functionality. It is composed of an assemblage of pipes, re ecting on what remains of broken communication systems, and creating a self-contained circuit where no landscape canbe seen.
