A cloud of dust rises in the air, distributes, and continues to fill every little thing uniformly. I will be catching them, lightly, before they hit the ground; I will then be marking them, removing their accumulation, and announcing a thorough clean as long as I stop cleaning.

Temporary Memorials
14:00
Youngstorget
There has been a lot of debate regarding memorials in the aftermath of the terror attack, 22 July 2011. Time does not heal all wounds, and the political and societal tendencies of our time continues to trigger the feeling of insecurity. TEMPORARY MEMORIALS seek to challenge the form of “the memorial”, as well as reminding of what we promised each other > OPENNESS>TOLERANCE> UNITY>LOVE. An interactive performance with sculptural objects taking place at Youngstorget.

KHiO to a Secret Location. Meet outside KHiO main reception, please wear good footwear and warm clothing.
Time, time time, see what’s become of me While I looked around for my possibilities
I was so hard to please But look around The leaves are brown And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
Hear the Salvation Army band Down by the riverside’s, there’s bound to be a better ride Than what you’ve got planned
Carry your cup in your hand And look around you Leaves are brown, now And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
-”A Hazy Shade of Winter”, Simon and Garfunkel, 1966

“Those admirable temples, are only valid in the heart of ignorant people”? The dilemma of the attemption to turn a message into universal or specific. “I live in my pig pen, sleepless the whole night.” A sentence has been written. The author only participates in the very beginning. The only thing he and the others can do is to experience how its percepts are formed.

Natural History Museum in Oslo
At a certain point in week 44 this November a situation involving a florescent light at the Natural History Museum in Oslo started. The far-from-world-altering event might still to this day be fluctuating between states of undying and lifelessness. It might even be that this unstably frozen point in time has not even come to fruition yet. Maybe just knowing is enough. So that by the time you read this, the flux might already be well-established, through your partial knowing and unknowing of what lies beyond these lines, and through this aligning itself with our state of mundanity, so that it can seep out into our world, and be part of an even larger idea, feeding on the nonsense of our everyday.

There is one specific postcard from Oslo that dates back to 1975. The motive on the front is from a summers day at Sognsvann in Oslo, on the back she writes that they long for days like these.

from belly button to belly button It is a gesture that relies on trust. It is a meeting happening at both ends of the Atlantic Ocean joined by the Gulf Stream. Ubiquitous site(ing) and deep listening. It is a meeting. Here and there – and no place at all and all places at once. Communication embedded to the land. from belly button to belly button

The Need To Tell You (Arecibo Revisited)
Wed, October 30th, 18.30-19.00
Fri, November 1st, 17.30-18.00
RadioNova DAB (Oslo Student Radio) https://radionova.no
What happens when a thought is turned into language, given shape by becoming text, image, music, just to be morphed once again into zeroes and ones and squeezed through space, traveling vast distances in an instant? How far do we reach? How can we possibly tell an unknown receiver far away anything at all? Still there is a need to tell you. A sound piece based on an updated version of the so-called Arecibo Message. Performed by Eirin Øgård Kinn. Recorded at Skarmyra Allaktivitetshus, Moss. Broadcast twice during week 44 by the Oslo based student radio station RadioNova.

Sofienbergparken minigjenbruksstasjon (recycling station)
A selection of books will be taken care of during the week. It will probably involve a lot of hard work and a lot of emotions. One suggestion is to make three types of piles, one yes-pile, one no-pile and one maybe-pile. If there are any problems with making decisions for the last pile, one can just try to put everything in a bag and put in a place where it can’t be seen and wait for a few months. After doing this procedure individually, we can collectively ask ourselves if we missed anything. Because if we didn’t miss the items during this time, will we miss them in the future?

Noe ekte / Something real

KHiO, Scene 2
Men lydopptaket, fikk meg til å føle noe. Jeg kjente det i kroppen, i magen, i ryggraden, i brystet. Der kjente jeg det, som en vibrering på en bestemt frekvens. Som en slags dypere fornemmelse av noe.

Noe ekte er en monolog, fremført på en scene, hvor ideen og fornemmelsen av noe ekte diskuteres. /
Something real
is a monologue, performed on a stage, discussing the sense and the idea of something real.
