SolspeilDeep in the narrow Vestfjord valley in Norway, surrounded by mountains and at the foot of the mighty Gaustatoppen peak, lies the industrial town of Rjukan; a small and quiet community that lives in darkness for six months of the year. Their isolation and the conditions in which they live first drew me there. Solspeil, translating to 'sun mirrors', rest at the top of one of Rjukan's mountain walls. These three mirrors follow the sun's path throughout the entire year using a computer programme powered by solar and wind energy. They capture the sun that hits the top of the mountain and reflect it down into the market square, creating a small circle of light for the community to enjoy.
