QR Island

The QR Island hides tragedy in plain sight. It points to that which we can't easily talk about. It acknowledges the distance we have from the terrible events that occurred on the 22nd of July, 2011 on the island of Utøya, while fulfilling the need to grapple with them.

Once scanned, the QR island took the user to the following link, where the facts of that horrific day our laid out. Through a model, through a mirror, through a link we can see more clearly.

QR Island forms part of CAN’s ongoing ‘Landscapes of Tradegy’ series
