At the end of Norway’s southernmost exercise track, we built this.
A poetry-chair, aslo called «The listening station». It has become a treasured spot for contemplation, for listening, for enjoying the horizon and generally feeling good.
It is a chair reciting Norwegian poetry (in English or Norwegian). The visitors can choose, via their mobile phones, what they want to hear. It’s a different experience in the wind and weather, with the horizon as a backdrop.
