Lit through transparent crystalline objects, have been placed on the ground in the dark room of "Rotundan", a small building which cannot be entered but only viewed from the outside. Hanging above the crystals growing from the ground, are more crystals, seemingly floating in the air.
The light in the room shift during the hours of the day. Mid-day, the sunlight falling in from the windows lights up the crystals from outside creating blue shadows on the white walls and ceiling, and after sunset, these sculptures are shining from the inside instead, lighting up the room with a blue light that will be noticed by pedestrians passing by the building at night.
A soundtrack has been composed with the exhibition in mind (the music is written by Per Jonsson, who goes by the name of Preybird) . Just like crystals will change and shift depending on light and surroundings, this musical piece also changes and shifts accordingly: atonal, dissonant parts turn into harmonious and beautiful music, and both tempo and intensity of the music change. The music calls into mind a sparse industrial milieu with its mechanical factory sounds, where sometimes lights breaks through in the shape of harmonious music.
One could say that this installation is representative of a place, although not a physical location but a state - a place where your mind goes; a state of mind. The word "where" in the title Where a Million Rhinestones Sit and Cry (a phrase, which by the way, is borrowed from the lyrics of an 80's pop song), is an allusion to a "somewhere", a place. A place, apparently, where rhinestones goes and do nothing but let their elegiac singing echo through the darkness.
