Last September, an astonishing vessel settled in the west of Norway. Direction: Hardangerfjord, one of the most beautiful fjords of Norway.
It is in this magical place that a strange object, whose silhouette evokes a stranded spaceship, made its appearance.
This egg-shaped mass, covered with what seems to be scales, is an artistic installation that also serves as an information center on aquaculture. Its architecture, but also its unique design and immersive experience installations were created by Kvorning Design, to inspire and inform on how to sustainably feed the planet through marine resources. Its exterior mimics the shiny, silver skin of salmon.
Its shape suggests the curve of the fish’s eye, hence the name: ” Salmon Eye “.
A design and a location that allows it to be visible from several miles away. Funded in part by the salmon farming company Eide Fjordbruk, “Salmon Eye” claims to be the largest floating aquaculture art installation in the world.
