SÅHEIM TURBINE (all photo: Ingvill Sunnby)

The hydropower turbine in front of the Såheim station was used as an antenna to be able to detect and record the electromagnetic frequencies that are currently being emitted throughout Rjukan.

The data and metadata recorded along with the audio was used to generate text using a neural network trained on the history of Rjukan and solarpunk and sci-fi literature. For this location the network created a dialogue between Jeaette Rieffel, a software engineer, and the quantum supercomputer Q.A.B.I.S.T., in the year 2150, speaking on the possible evolution of cooperative systems in technology focused on societal welfare instead of profit.
