Located adjacent to the E4 motorway in Upplands Väsby,
InfraCity is halfway between the city and Arlanda airport.
This shining sphere illuminates a roundabout.

What a wonderful globe - lovely otherworldly light...

Thanks. Yes, it’s a lot nicer than anything I’d expect to find alongside a motorway. As a matter of fact, it’s even more interesting than this still picture is able to reveal. The colors and patterns keep moving and pulsating inside the globe. Hey, maybe we’re all being hypnotized? ;)

very cool globe!

I guess they've been inspired by the globes outside Uppsala ( A city 60 K's north of Stockholm). No patterns though, more like a model of an atom and colours that change over time. Globes facinates the audience including me. Nice shot Per.

That is a pretty unexpected site!

what a fancyful thing to use, I wonder if it is the size I think it is - quite big?

Per Stromsjo said...

chris & Deb, Sally: Yes, it’s pretty cool and such artistic surprises are exactly what we need to take us through the winters at this latitude.

stefan: I wasn’t aware of competing globes outside Uppsala. Then again, I’m not the most experienced driver… :)

julia: If I remember correctly its diameter is roughly 2 meters.

Thanks all for commenting. In case you didn't notice, there is a close-up behind the link "See more?".
