Woven portraits

Portraiture and photography have similarly impossible missions: we don’t see a person by looking at their portrait, and a photograph is not a window into another time—it is an object. I want this ongoing series to acknowledge these impossibilities, but not as dead ends. Portraiture has always had in it a certain longing, and a photograph has always been a mechanical and tangible thing. This is a striking conflict, which has its own way of conveying meaning, because, to me, portraits and photography have another similarity: they both hide as much as they show.

Site-specific art by Stuart Ian Frost

Stuart Ian Frost is a British artist based in Norway.

In his artistic practice, the notion/idea “place” stands central. It functions both as a theoretic and creative starting point. Through the whole of his artistic career, he has sought out specific places in various countries and carried out so-called site-specific projects. More specifically, he has been searching for each chosen places identifiable characteristics/qualities such as history, topography, architecture, culture, and specifically raw material etc. Almost like “searching through ruins”, he looks for anything, literally anything that might be of interest.

Video bokeh

I do need a better (video)camera (this was taken with my old companion, the FZ-30), and the sound is not good. I do, however, love the concept of moving lights together with the sounds that suggests what is happening.

Noe helt annet, men likevel...
