The Norway memorial site of the worst mass shooting in modern history -- of 77 people three years ago in Oslo -- is being transformed. Swedish artist and architect Jonas Dahlberg plans to use the land to make art that will commemorate the massacre site forever.

The island of Utoya is where the gunman gained access to a summer camp and committed the atrocities. Dahlberg is proposing to create a massive gap of water and air, by slicing a huge section of the island’s landmass. He wants to do this because it would create a void that he describes would be symbolic to a wound or cut within nature itself.

The simulated pictures of what the memorial site will look like when the project is completed are simply stunning. The Norway memorial site will make use of nature to commemorate the horrific politically motivated mass killing. Stats for Nature-Transforming Memorial Sites Trending: Older & Popular
