In this project I tried to recreate instruments and models that could reconstitute situations of uncertainty based on themes such as light phenomena and electromagnetic anomalies that move between explained facts and simple delusions. 'Min Egen Sol' (My Own Sun, translation from norwegian into english) was held during the A-i-R Sandnes Programme (Norway) ,supported and funded by Sandnes City Council and Rogaland County Council (NO).

Special thanks to Nils-Thomas Økland for inviting me to this project.

Davis Quadrant (Backstaff) is a navigational instrument from the 16th century that was used to measure the altitude of a celestial body, in particular the Sun or Moon. When observing the Sun, users kept the Sun to their back (hence the name) and observed the shadow cast or reflected image by the upper vane on a horizon.

For this project I tried to subvert the original function of the instrument, bringing a playful use with the transposition of the solar image.

Three balls of lightning connected by a luminous rod-like structure. The balls may be of different sizes but they move together. Triple balls lightning cannot be less mysterious than ordinary ball lightning. The puzzling connecting structure only aggravates the problem of explaining these long-lived energetic manifestations.
