Falling Apples, Hegg School, Lier, Norway, 2015

Bigert & Bergström are working on a new public commission for the Hegg school in Lier, Norway. The project is titled Falling Apples and consists of a group of hanging large apples made of stainless steel. Parts of the apples are polished to a mirror that reflect an altered image of the viewer. As a physical version of the protocinematic technique of chronophotography, developed by Etienne Jules Marey in the 1880s, the apples are fixed mid-air in different stages of their fall. On their way down through the central atrium of the school, the apples looses more and more of their physicality. And an apple on the floor is almost completely consumed as it is transformed into a social sculpture on which the visitors can sit down.

The project is made in collaboration with the city of Lier and KORO Norway and will be finalized during the spring 2015.
