Piles are three designs made of 45.546 shiny pixels that represent the vast quantities of soil, water and rubble that is excavated from the Copenhagen underground. Those who move outside the fence can only guess what’s really going on behind the green wall, deep in the ground and under the houses.

The three figures feed our imagination with images and contrasts with their glittering sequins it’s portrayed material and thus creating a counterpoint to the raw construction site.

The project was funded by the Danish Arts Foundation and the Copenhagen Metro.

Site - Kongens Nytorv, Copenhagen.

Made with Pétur Örn Eyjólfsson.
