Connect is a new public site-specific artwork created by visual artist Christian Elovara Dinesen in close collaboration with Raaderum. The work is a sound and light sculpture placed under the wooden crowns in a new youth park in Bolbro, Odense. The work consists of an illuminated rotating mirror ball with built-in speakers, which is placed on an old-fashioned lamppost, beneath the lamppost is a pla
tform of black smooth marble. The sculpture creates an intimate, cool and beautiful space in the corner of the new youth park. As a visitor to the park, you can “connect” to the speaker inside the mirror ball and play music. In this way, the artwork becomes an obvious meeting place for young people to hang out with each other and meet through music. It is the Områdefornyelsen, DitBolbro, Odense Municipality, which initiated the transformation of the new youth park, it is happening as part of a major area renewal in Bolbro, which you can read more about here: https://www.odense.dk/byens-udvikling/byudviklingsprojekter/dit-bolbro

The work is supported by Odense Art Fund.
