I am back in NORWAY, in BERGEN to be exact... have a lot on MIND so am not that good at posting ..but though I would share this with you in the meantime. Don't understand anything of the TEXT.. but think the pictures came out nice ..you might remember them from this earlier post right HERE. Ah, I miss NEW YORK! ..and talking of pictures .. was told some days ago that my 'PICTURE STORY' from dOCUMENTA 13 was the most read on KUNSTKRITIKK.NO last year. Nice to know ..maybe you guys had something to do with that..? ..who knows!

SUNSET, SALT LAKE AND SPIRAL JETTY, UTAH



Back in NEW YORK after an amazing trip. After driving 2200 miles/ 3500 km (!!) ..and sleeping in a new bed every night it feels good to be back in our apartment. Nature, complete silence and no people around can be fantastic, but I have to say, when we drove into FLAGSTAFF on one of the days on this trip and I saw a THAI RESTAURANT and a WINE BAR, I had to admit to myself that I will always love coming back to civilization, no matter how breathtaking nature can be.

SPIRAL JETTY, THE GREAT SALT LAKE, UTAH


These pictures were taken yesterday evening as the SUN was setting over the SPIRAL JETTY. After leaving the Jetty on Thursday we decided that we wanted to go back to see it during the sunset the next day. Both E and I agree that it was totally worth it. The first day there was no wind and it was very warm. It was so quiet and still that it was STRIKING, even for a Norwegian. When we arrived yesterday there were small waves on the lake and the wind was blowing gently. As I was balancing on the stones on my way out on the Jetty, trying not to get my shoes wet, I suddenly realized how ridiculous it was that I was wearing shoes. The wind and the salty water made me feel like I was by the OCEAN, and that totally changed my feelings about the situation. Instead of thinking of the Jetty as only a piece of ART that I was balancing on, it also became a tool to relate to and experience the nature surrounding it. With that shift the shoes had to go, and I had the best time walking around feeling the water, sand and rocks under my feet and the wind and warm sun on my face.
