THESE WERE NOT CHOSEN (2011) was an art in public space project produced during Trondheim Open 2011* (NO). A collaboration between artist Brynhild Bye-Tiller and the local newspaper Adresseavisen. Bye-Tiller got an assignment as a photographer in a typical news story. One image was selected by the photo editor and the journalist in Adresseavisen and printed October 8th. The other images which was not selected and the one who were selected, was presented to and discussed with the public at different locations in Trondheim. The public could vote for the image they thought was best suited for the story. The story presented two local immigrant women from Liberia who were proud of their President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, who received the Nobel Peace Prize (2011). The news about the Nobel laureate breaked that day. The title of the story was: "We are very proud".

The majority of the public selected picture labeled G with 21 votes. The newspaper chose picture labeled A with 17 votes.
