LIGHTROPE was part of the initial program DACE, outline for a Danish-Arabic Cultural Exchange, 2001-02. In February 2008 LIGHTSCAPE was one of three projects planned to be realized in Sharjah´s public space. It failed due to the financial crisis. The two other projects were MOONLIGHT OASIS & SHARJAH DIALOGUES.
LIGHTSCAPE - The Snow Queen was finally presented as an installation at the exhibition NOMAD ACADEMY GOES PUBLIC, Sharjah Art Museum, December 2008.
