60°N 05°E
(encased waterside)
Mirrored inner city fjord in Bergen / Norway
A shiny silver panel lying on the landscape measuring 450 m² has been covering since June 2012 the stony shore of an inner city fjord in Bergen / Norway.

The Berlin artist Thorsten Goldberg, well-known for his work in public space, has exactly aligned his new work 60°N 05°E (encased waterside) to the earth‟s coordinate system. It describes the area between 60°22´52.55"N / 60°22´51.8"N and 05°20´01.24"E / 05°20´02.32"E. Composed of 800 individual polished stainless steel triangles it perfectly adapts to the topography of the ground. In that place now all elements seem to dissolve into each other. By changing tides the often faceted surface is partially covered by water, and reflects both the water and the sky. Once the object is provided with a pulse of light at dusk, the panel seems to be transferred to a glider.
On June 15th, 2012  the outdoor sculpture
60°N 05°E (encased waterside) by Thorsten Goldberg was inaugurated as part of the “Bybanen Art Program” in Bergen / Norway.
