a thin layer

Imagine the earth to be as small as a billiard ball. Then breathe onto it. The layer inside of which human life is possible – from the few meters of depth we can dive into the ocean without being asphyxiated by pressure, to the height of the mountains of Himalaya- this layer is only as thin in relation to planet earth, as the steam of…

october 9th – moskenesøya

The last town on Lofoten is called Å, because this is the last letter in the Norwegian alphabet. To get there, you follow the E10 which is carving its way around the steep slopes. The mountainsides fall away sharply into the ocean, and only a very narrow strip has been asphalted and fenced. There is so little space here in the corner between horizontal and…

october 8th – flakstad

The area of Flakstad, with its main towns Ramberg, Flakstad and Fredvang, is facing the Norwegian Arctic Sea. On the white sand beaches, wind and waves created beautifully assorted sand patterns. We love to leave foot prints on pristine beaches, but no one dares to cross these patterns here. Their uncanny beauty seems too unique to be disturbed by Nike soles.

a memory scan

Unless I find a way to merge myself into landscape or to declare my bruises and scratches that I collected while hiking to be artworks, I have to rely on digital scanning techniques. Eventually, everything will either be build from quads, cubes, pixels or triangles.

November 20th – man-made moon

Yesterday I learned about the word „Wüstung“ in an exhibition by Lois Weinberger. The english term „devastation“ sounds even more final to me. He said, nature is always in order; . I wonder if this will be the case after we left our planet devastated.

what makes it more real than in a sepia image

In my accommodation in Kabelvåg, old sepia photos and drawings are covering the wooden walls. Kabelvåg must have had an eventful past with town assembly and festivities. People wore festive garments and the little market square was decorated nicely. Like the glass protecting the photo paper, there’s a coating between the now and then, and the us and them. I have no idea how these…
