Nicknames

Back in the day it was common for workers to get 'christined' by your coworkers with nicknames - often replacing their birthgiven names in day-to-day conversations. The stories behind their nick are often the most interesting and funniest part - revealing their personality - or how others viewed them. One of "Brudgommen" or 'The Groom' - went and got married in the lunch break. 

A selection of the nicknames - combined with an silhouette of a part of machinery is embedded around the area of Aker Brygge. The artworks are laser cut from different metals. The negative shape is carved into the paving stone and the metal attached to it.

Three Minutes

This clock was originally placed at the top of 'Verkstedhallen' - the workers entrance. It was an important part of the daily life at Aker Mechanical Workshop. The whistle signal from the clock warns of the working day start, end and lunch break.

A tunnel connected the workplace area to the cantina and wardrobes. From the start of the whistle signal, the workers had three minutes to punch the time clock. If they arrived one minute over the alloted three minutes, the workers where deducted fifteen minutes of salary. 

We refurbished the old clock with new lighting and door. We also etched a mural onto the exterior cobber sheets of the clock ...a long artwork illustrated on a large canvas and then applied to the metal.
