Vebjørn Sand has proven to be a figure in contemporary Norwegian society whose interests have not been confined to the studio but who has inspired public discussion, debate and even controversy. His collaborative project, Trollslottet, was immensely popular and has become a favorite of the Norwegian media. In this role he has brought the Leonardo Project to the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and has inspired its construction in the town of Ås. To build this bridge five hundred years after it was designed by Leonardo da Vinci is a tribute to Vebjørn Sand’s vision, as well as to the vision of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and the engineering firms responsible for its realization. Norwegian public life boasts a long-standing relationship between the artist and society.
