X marks the spot! I love the juxtaposition of the wild shrubbery and the ordered appearance of the sign. An effective contrast. LIKE 1. Cheers, Joe

Nice idea - there were ants crossing, right?

Amelia Royan on April 19, 2012

It's a strange contrast Joe, but if you look at the GE map you can see that the cross road signs are exactly placed at the spot where the E39 sub-sea and land tunnel crosses underneath the footpath on the island of Bru.

Cheers, Amelia

I just wanted to say 'wow that must be the most dangerous intersection in the world', but after reading your comment and zooming in on the map it totlaly makes sense Amelia. Pretty creative!

cheers, Tomas

Thank you dear Karl - I'm glad this made you smile! :))))

Greetings from a wet and cold UK, Amelia

Hello Mick, if you have read my comment to Joe you may have a bit more of an idea what this is about. A local farmer has lent the land to a group of landscape artists, and I think this installation, strange as it is, is very imaginative in its own way. Like you I wondered what it was about - the GE map might help you to understand the concept! :)))

Cheers, Amelia

Hi Amelia,

I have revisited a few times for updates as is often the case with your more intriguing photos. I had read your comment to Joe and checked it all out on GE at which point it started to make sense. However the lack of anything between the signs still had me thinking which it seems was the artists idea here - It worked ;>)

All the best for the weekend Mick

If the ants use this as a crossing, which is perfectly possible Klaus, then they were hibernating on that day I'm pleased to say. It would be interesting to go back in the summer to see if this is part of their main thoroughfare. ;-)

Hope you have a great weekend with better weather than we are having in the UK!

One can imagine a pile up of quad bikes here Tomas - there doesn't seem to be a right of way!

I think Jørn Rønnau is quite creative - I would never have thought of this. :)

Enjoy your weekend, Amelia

Amelia Royan on April 27, 2012

Cheers Mick. I hope the weather is better for you. It is abysmal in Shropshire, but at least I've got round to some replies, and may even get round to some visits! :)))

So crossroads hits Norski even if it is a subversive underground experience ~~~

Nothing like a bit of submersion dear Nick, especially if one is a mermaid!

Yours as always, Mata Hari.
