Hopes and wishes:
I hope this project will bring out some good ideas for the art project at Stortorget. That the youths will show us their wishes for how their experiences of the square.
What is important for a meeting place, how they move and relax, their behavior.
My contribution for the schoolbag project will be as an adviser and to inspire and develope the youths projects. I will advise them to how to work with space, lights, materials, nature, size, energi , experiences and mind, etc. How we together will se the possibilities to look for the heart of Hamar. I am curiouse and hope we shall bring in the water and some poetry:-)
As i have worked with public comissions for many years I always start with an analyses of the situation. Then I ask myself what I will add for the experience of the space. Most of my work is indoors, only the latest is outside and in nature. So this will be a new experience.
