In March 2017 I completed the third and last glass window for Sentralen in Oslo.
Titled Mended Paths it is made in the same way as the two windows that were installed a year earlier, in water cut, mouth blown glass. It was commissioned by Sentralen and Sparebankstiftelsen after the completion of this newly renovated building, after the dust cleared and there was finally room and time to execute the original idea of three windows - one for each of the adjoining streets around the building. See all of them here.
The three designs can be described as drawings of multiple paper cut-outs. These imagined paper cuts have simple block color designs on each side, the folding and layering of the cuts creating a weaving effect in its colors and shapes. This simple modulation of the shapes into busier perceptual compositions are augmented by the analog variation in the hues of the glass and the ever-changing sunlight throughout the day.
