Laterna Magica features the Tryvann TV tower’s iconic luminescent design that has been a favorite optical reference on the mountainside of Oslo since 1962. In the image, the glowing tower appears in complete darkness. Cut off from its natural environment and any contextual information, the tower becomes an untethered object magically floating in infinite space.
