A heavy snowfall cut the power in Tordal on the day we got a visit from Ariane and Bjorn from Berlin. We made hot chocolate and espresso for our guests on the old stove in the kitchen...

It was a close call; we finished as number two with our art proposal for Storoya Grendesenter, but sadly the jury did not choose Habitat.
Our proposal was to build a cross between a sculpture and a science center for the kids at the community center. Two 20’ containers created the space and a nest of sibirian Larch beams with lasercut acrylic glass branches surrounded it. This nest was to be filled with a plethora of science equipment for the kids. Digital motion detection cameras from National Geographic which the kids would set up in the forest one day and bring in the next too see which animals they ”caught” during the night. Field microscopes, beautiful Somso models of bees, snakes and other fauna in the area, water and soil-analysis equipment (too mention a few). On the roof of Habitat a weather station would collect data and make statistics which the kids could study and compare with bird migration, the power output from the sun and water power station of the school etc.
