Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Landsvirkjun, the National Power Company of Iceland, a visitor centre was created at Ljósafossstöđ, one of the country’s oldest hydro stations. The aim was to create an interactive centre where visitors can learn about the basics of the nature of electrical power. In addition, it informs about the discoveries that led to the mass production of electricity and the development of harnessing renewable energy. Featuring an open and inviting concept, a large part of the exhibition consists of powerful sound and kinetic light sculptures as an ode to the natural phenomena that form the foundation of Iceland’s renewable electricity production.
