In two stairwells at Vålerenga School, Oslo, the glass railings covered with two different compositions of coloured adhesive foil. Diversity is an abstract composition where the motifs are playful and vary in size, colour and shape. The Kombat Version, on the other hand, tells in short film cut-like scenes about a football match between two teams: the local hero Vålerenga against Brand Bergen. The local team is an excellent source of identification for the pupils and helps strengthen school cohesion.
