I collected in the streets of Gothenburg 24 umbrellas together. All umbrellas were slightly damaged and were therefore
discarded by their owners. 6 Umbrellas I have bought new. With these umbrellas which were constituted all a little bit different I went to the highest bridge in Gothenburg and I have thrown down these 30 umbrellas. Each umbrella flown
down different. Some of them floated lightly in circular motions down. Some fell like wounded aircraft in the depth
and landed in the River Göta älv.
