This project was realised as part of a bigger investigation into the ongoing development of wind-energy in Trøndelag, FosenVind was said to become Europes biggest windpark on land when finished in 2020. To get an image or a feeling of what it would look like to find an alien structure in this landscape, blocking the view, I brought with me a big black box up all the six mountains that was part of the building site. The black box is a simple but distinctly artificial element which stands in stark contrast to the nature of these sites. This element could be seen as an exaggeration of the wind-turbine/the man made in this context mirroring man's ever ceasing encroachment into the natural world. This resulted in a photoseries of six images, possibly some of the last photos taken from these mountains before they got turned into industry-parks.
