Fornebu - Traces of Time

Fornebu - Traces of Time
Snarøya, Norway. Janyary 2016 - November 2017.

Visual artist Christine Istad has drawn inspiration from Oslo Airport, Fornebu when she made this 100 meter long artwork.
In the new town emerging at Fornebu there are layers of stories from the time when the area was an airport and until today.
Through Christine Istad their photographs and drawings from the period 2000 - 2015, we see these layers in the form of stories, memories, track and visions.

OBOS Fornebulandet want to contribute positively to this area which is changing and adopting building fences to display art.
