The traffic junction at Odenskog marks the entrance to the city of Östersund from road E14. To underline the significance of the place, the landscape within the circular junction, with a diameter of 140 m, has been shaped with low banks and planted with lines of Amelanchier spicata. The asymmetrical pattern of the banks and lines is completed with six asymmetrically placed icy blue-towards-turquoise light sculptures roughly the same scale as the passing cars. In the daytime the sculptures, made of fibreglass reinforced polyester plastic, are opaque and make a solid impression. At night they are semitransparent and lit from within. The traffic junction with its sculptures and shaped landscape has attracted a lot of attention and discussion. Within a short time it has established Odenskog as a place with its own identity and an entrance to the city.
