Mirage (Luftspeiling) evokes the celestial light that passes through the clouds, an atmospheric phenomenon in which warm air is less dense than cold air, letting through beams of light that create a fairy-tale effect in the sky and in the eyes. Like trompe-l’œil or an optical illusion, the mirage lets an image appear as if in a mirror. Tempelhaug’s palette is soft and rich in pastel tones, akin to the refraction of light in a rainbow.
