"Meeting of Waves"
While standing on the station platform you see the surface of the water from the Essinge inlet which now and then reflects the bright magic of the sun and merges with the rebirth of the place. Here we meet and go off in different directions, to the East and the West, passing across hills and water.
I wanted to catch the light, water and rock inside of the station, reminding every traveller of the surroundings outside as they touch or view the elements within the station.
