The installation is created out of Copper sheets produced by the Solar Industry. The so called ‘Backcontact Backsheets’ are designed for the inside of Solar panels. The backsheet is a material build for a life in darkness, hidden from both vision and exposure of light behind the well known variations of darkblue that characterise Solar Panels all over the world.
In the installation the appropriated, raw copper sheets are stripped of the front that usually cover them. Thus the material enter a different life exposed to light, air and vision, and will from this point on continously reflect and react with the surroundings. Thereby backsheets, will over time gradually change and patinate due to the exposure to light and oxygen.
