Day 1728, paint a block.

Are we making, in our life, a beautiful sculpture of our being here, or a Jenga tower?

If you think about your own life, can you do that detached from your preconceptions? Do you dare to ask yourself questions? Do you dare to read books that contradict what you believe or explore areas you’ve never been? Are you the kind of person that asks questions?

I think that a lot of people will feel the urge to say yes to some or all of these (kind of) questions. I also believe that most people think they are open minded and ask questions, but they do this, unknowingly, from within their little corner of the world of ideas.

It is off course impossible that one human being can understand everything that is in this “world of ideas”. But if you see all the knowledge we gathered in the world as written in a big book, than you can at least open the book and see what chapters there are. Most people live in their own chapter and know of the others trough hearsay and maybe a footnote every now and than.

Philosophy is exploring other parts of the book of life. If you see your life as a peace of art, and I think you should, than you can make a monochrome, square block that represents one page of that book or you can make a van Gogh painting where all colours come from another chapter and every stroke of the brush is an adventure.

My poem for today is from Day 1025.

A beautiful crafted

why

we never see inside

your illusion

reason

I don’t know why this poem inspired me to write the text above, I hope it is “a beautiful crafted…why”, and indeed, it might be my illusion and obviously I don’t know the reason.

Without kidding. Whatever “artwork” someone makes out of their life, we, the onlooker, will never know what illusion, or reason the creator that lived that life had. In that sense we can all be admired even if it is not for aesthetic reasons.

Day 1665, sideways.

Like our nose

we don’t see the truth

when we approach it

to close

~

we can still see

a part of it

when we close

the right eye

when stepping back

is not an option

Self-publishing on Amazon

Black cover.jpg

This week I got the idea to self-publish some of my poetry combined with pictures. I have done that before but that was purely for myself and through a photo website, which was great quality but also expensive, like 90 dollars or so. So, I went to the Amazons self-publishing site and looked at some tutorials on YouTube and it seems to work great and for what you get it’s a good deal (I hope, haven’t read all the fine print). I have not received a copy of my little book, so I don’t know what the quality is, especially because I included color pictures, but for the 20 dollars (including postage to Norway) I spend there is not mush to loose…besides my time.

Photoshopped disappointment.

After the elections in America in 2016 I was upset to say the least so to vent some of my anger I started making Photoshopped pictures with a message. By coincident we had just visited family in America that summer, so I had a lot of pictures to work with. With some of the pictures it is pretty clear what the message is with others you have to look a little closer. I’m curious if you find the messages that are hidden.

My only model and Muse.

I never cared much about model photography, mostly because it’s not easy to get willing subjects. I have only taken pictures of my girlfriend/fiancé but that is mainly because she has  so many wild ideas and fantasies which she can’t always photograph alone.  Not to mention she doesn’t mind laying in the snow naked or ice cold waters. She doesn’t fear entering old dusty, rusty buildings or worn-down sheds to pose or lie down on the floor in a tunnel because I saw some nice lighting or shadows that inspired me.  I hope you enjoy them.

Some artsy sunshine

It was dark and storming here and the power was gone for a couple of hours so I got my laptop and played around with some 10 year old pictures, you have to do something…hope you like it.

Beautiful side of America.

There is a lot of ugliness going on in America but there is also a lot of beauty. New York is my favorite city in the world and the scenery in and around Utah is beautiful. Driving on almost empty roads with endless views. These pictures are from 2016.

You bend
Round
what is straight
Down

You’re cold
Steel
It is plain
Flat

You don’t

What is the same
Depressed

You’re mine

It is simple
