Rjukan is a small Norwegian town of roughly 3,300 residents nestled in a valley in northern Norway. Because of its unique geographic location, the town is cloaked in darkness for five months every year.
But not for much longer! A new project is installing mirrors on a mountaintop that overlooks the city and will shine a artificial sunlight into the town. Exposure to sunlight helps ward off depression and sadness, so the town of Rjukan just might be a little more cheerful this winter.
These 2013 installations by Jason Peters began with garbage. while driving he spotted many of these buckets - the five gallon type often found in hardware stores. Soon Peters had collected hundreds of them. His installations utilize these buckets to form huge winding installations. The stacked buckets, lit from within, snake through large spaces.
