About Nature Experience Chair 'Huldreputten'
This nature experience chair can be found next to Huldreputten, just a few hundred metres from the viewpoint by the utility pole on Skjellungskampen. The Huldreputten nature experience chair was created by Bjørn Tordsson in 2013.
We wish to invite people to come and visit the diverse and species-rich nature that exists along Land’s and Etnedal’s watercourses with our exhibition ‘Nature Experience Chairs in the Dokka Delta Ecosystem’. The nature experience chairs can be found in diverse ‘nature spaces’ from Synnfjell in the north to Randsfjorden in the south. Art installations can act as trip destinations to encourage people to spend more time outdoors and develop a different perspective of nature. The diverse nature spaces tell a story of the landscape through the seasons and the relationships that exist between people and nature. We welcome the rain and the wind, the smell of mires and blossom, bubbling becks and ephemeral views, ancient creatures and the flapping of wings.
Are in nature can be used to encourage people away from vulnerable conservation areas to designated ‘nature spaces’, offering the same experience without damaging the balance of nature.
Take a walk to the artwork, enjoy being surrounded by nature.
There are 13 different nature experience chairs to be found placed in different environments in Etnedal, Nordre Land and Søndre Land:
• Bird's Nest
