Public work at Södermals School in Sundsvall, 2022
The main part of the works at Södermalms School in Sundsvall is in the dining room and also spreads out in several other places in the building, e.g. the entrance, stairways and the corridors.
Abstract motifs were created to that promote imagination. Seeing recognizable objects or patterns in otherwise random or unrelated objects is called pareidolia. It is a term for the human tendency to seek patterns in a random formation.
The mosaic is created from matte clinker and reflective glass mosaic parts in different sizes, which creates a so-called ”quadtree” structure, where each part is divided into exactly four parts with the same shape and can be seen as a reference to a pixel-image getting sharper over time.
