Nature experience chairs in the Dokka Delta Ecosystem

With our exhibition ‘nature experience chairs in the Dokka Delta Ecosystem’ we would like to invite you to experience the diverse and varied nature that can be found along Land’s and Etnedal’s waterways. The nature experience chairs can be found in various ‘nature spaces’, from Synnfjell in the north to Randsfjorden in the south. These diverse nature spaces tell a story of nature throughout the seasons, and the relationship between humans and nature. The nature experience chairs are our wetland exhibition. We welcome the rain and the wind, the smell of mires and blossom, bubbling becks and ephemeral views, ancient creatures and the flapping of wings. Nature is always inviting and welcoming!

 

Art in nature or discovering human nature through the natural world

Art in nature means to use nature as an exhibition space. Art, or the expression of the human experience, can be controversial. It creates debate and it draws the curious into nature. Even people that do not have an immediate connection to the outdoors. Art can be a hiking destination that encourages people to spend more time outside and get another perspective of nature. The composition can be informative and challenge our senses. Art in nature can also be used to encourage people away from vulnerable conservation areas to nature spaces; areas that offer the same nature experience without disturbing the balance of nature. With our concept art in nature we wish to achieve an interaction between art and the nature space, rather than change the nature space for the sake of the artwork.

To make it easier to find our nature experience chairs we’ve signposted along the roads and footpaths with the logo for Dokkadeltaet and a picture of a chair. Many of our nature experience chairs have a post box with a notebook to write your experiences in.
