Erlend Mikael Sæverud captures the city streets of Oslo as interstellar mysteries,by imagining the universe being draged down to the streets.

Sæverud use inspiration from science fiction, surrealism, and film noir to create a world where the city streets are illuminated by the celestial glow of quasars while ominous black holes become passages to parallel worlds. This project is based upon a fictional book titled “The Book of Quasar.”

«When two galaxies collide, night becomes day and gates are revealing a parallel world
– you can only enter alone…»

(The Book of Quasar)

A quasar is a black hole with energetic jets beaming out from two sides. A quasar can emit up to 100 times the luminosity of the entire Milky Way (which contains a mere 200–400 billion stars). When the beams of a quasar are directed towards us, we become witnesses to an extraterrestrial lighthouse, carrying a brightness from the beginning of the universe. Behind this series’ speculative philosophy and unusual inspirations is a careful and studied attention to detail. The shots, made within a small area on the central streets of Oslo, Norway, are meticulously captured by the patient artist. Although usually not constructed, many are the result of countless hours in wait. A sunlit street corner becomes transformed into another dimension by the patient yet creative eye of this sensitive, terrestrial observer. [Official Website]
