2016 July 15

The highlight of the summer is for me Hvitsten Salong, an art festival situated between Son and Drøbak along the Oslo fjord. This little gem is the most beautiful little town of all the little towns in the entire fjord. Seriously, both Edvard Munch and Theodor Kittelsen had a house there. The experience is like no other. A weekend of art, concerts, nature, camping and the best people. It was curated by the eminent Jon Lundell. The summer of 2016 was a magical experience for all of us.

I made a little video together with Carsten Aniksdal with a contribution from Stina Högkvist. It was displayed in an old boathouse/bar on the pier. People viewed it as they stood in line waiting to buy beer. It was displayed on a vertical screen, so you gotta tilt your laptop on it’s side!

The concept was simple. We set up a metronome that was ticking throughout the shoot. Then Stina or I would make a movement using an object during four of those beats. The next person would make the next movement as a reaction to the last movement. Oh, and Petter Ballo dropped in!

Carsten filmed it and made the music. I directed and we did the post together.
