Birch Sunshine Recorder is a sculpture consisting of a crystal ball placed in a blackened piece of a birch trunk. Inside the wood, a ray of sunshine has been burned, representing the artists' long collaboration. A Sunshine Recorder is an analog tool used by meteorologists to record hours of sunshine per day. When the sun is up and moves in the sky, its rays are concentrated in the crystal ball, which burns a trajectory of the sun's passage into the wood. Comes with a signed certificate and a signed copy of he monograph Bigert & Bergström: Works 1986-2016 that covers 30 years of Mats Bigert & Lars Bergström's artistic practice. Bigert & Bergström is a Swedish artist duo working with sculpture, installation, film, and performance.
