The work is a solar-powered, data-driven public light installation, commissioned by Helsingør Municipality (DK), installed in Thomas Nielsens Passage behind Kulturværftet, Helsingør's landmark culture center, and library among the industrial halls of the old shipyard.

The installation consists of three sculptural light fixtures hovering suspended above the street, powered by a custom-built solar array. Using a specially designed web app to track the timing and distinct stages of the sunset, the installations' dynamic lights synergize and complement the shifting colors of the Nordic twilight.
The design of its sculptural elements pays homage to both the angular forms of the Kulturværftet's parametric façade as well as its historical industrial setting.
Through light and shape, the installation creates an artistic link between both the natural and the built environment.
