If you approach Esbjerg from the motorway, the first thing you will see is a colassal mound of earth with tiny cupolas of light spread out over it. This is Eva Koch and Steen Høyer's "Light Mound" (1997).

It is one of Denmark's largest works of art, 180 metres in diameter, with an adjacent earthwork of 320 metres that is intersected by a road. The "Light Mound" will not be complete until it is clad with heather, a process that will take years. At the same time, sheep are to graze on it - they eat everything but heather.

The pulsating of the light is best seen at night - the light intensity and rhytm being determined by the intensity of the traffic on the West Coast road.
