LIGHT was commissioned from SPUNK by the Henie Onstad Art Centre for the centre’s 40th anniversary in 2008.
LIGHT is an interaction between the art centre's environment and the musicians, in which, over a period of time, SPUNK takes possession of the space. By focussing on the spatial quality of light, SPUNK makes a reading of the building and its surroundings.
During Nordland Music Week 2008, SPUNK took possession of a disused pizza restaurant, formerly a popular hangout in the city of Bodø. For four days they trawled the town for objects with which to build a nest at the site, resulting in a concert and a sound installation.
In NEST, the local population becomes part of SPUNK's musical and spatial world by contributing materials for the building of the nest, by experiencing the concert itself, and by finally being able to take possession of the nest - and the musicians' sensory world - as a sound installation.
