book with various objects
50 x 100 x 20 cm
With this interactive book I would like to invite to a meeting place between people and book pages. Between people and objects, memories and contemporary. A meeting between the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional.
The book's potential for dialogue and storytelling is interesting for me. A place where poetry, reality and imagination can meet.
Please: Look. Print. Drawing.
Bring your thoughts and comments from everyday life, from the library, from life.
I found the objects on the streets of Oslo and collected them from friends. Cutouts in the book pages made these objects visible and given them new life.
Student house at St. Hanshaugen in Oslo
Spatial isolation has the effect loneliness among students. Tenants of St. Hanshaugen student housing had a balcony and shared kitchen on each floor. After the reconstruction, private kitchens and bathrooms replace this common area. Furthermore, the balconies and all common space will disappear.
As I see it, having lived in this space, the intervention limits the opportunity for students to meet, cook food, talk, laugh, and make new friends – to help, support, and share a common experience together.
The book is a portrait of the building and its tenants before renovation.
