Över sundet is an art and Internet of Things (IoT)  project with the aim of creating networks and increased exposure for creators in the cultural sector on both sides of the strait in Öresund. The project will create a cultural and technical lighting installation for residents and tourists in Elsinore and Helsingborg during the spring and summer of 2022. The purpose is to bring the viewers of the installation closer together, both within and between the two cities. This is done with the help of a group of artists and designers from both Sweden and Denmark.

The artists will use IoT as a method to create a connection between Helsingborg and Helsingör. The connection can be digital, physical or by other methods. The projects will be exhibited in a public place indoors. The artists will create an installation that tells and measures how the inhabitants of both cities feel. The city's mood will be measured using so-called IoT sensors that measure air pressure, temperature, humidity, particulate pollution and noise levels.

The installation will premiere in Elsinore when it is exhibited at Kulturværftet in April 2022, after which the installation travels to Dunkers kulturhus in Helsingborg to be exhibited between June 30 and July 3, during the international city fair H22.
