350.org

This post is part of Blog Action Day, where – for me – the main aim was to write something about the necessity for awareness, change and action towards our environment.

I have been involved in conceptualising actions and events for the global action day on the 24th of October for 350.org – an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis–the solutions that science and justice demand.

Their mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis—to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet.

The focus is on the number 350–as in parts per million, the level scientists have identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. At the moment we are in the danger zone and action need to be taken at the Climate Conference in Copenhagen this December, where world leaders will meet.

more info on their website

One of the things I initiated is the following:

Promote 350.org and spread the message by writing/drawing the number 350.org with a bar of soap on the glass wall of bus stops around the city. If you want to you can add an additional text as “this is an environmentally friendly message/ This message doesn’t do any harm to our environment/future/ Let’s clean up now so we can enjoy the future” or write down a way to cut down C02 emissions.


ps. If you leave your soap bar, you invite others to share their thoughts too!!

The underlying thoughts and strategies for this are using soap to ‘clean’ our future as well that you can wash it away it doesn’t leave permanent marks on the glass. Sort of an environmentally friendly message!

Further there is a plan to stage a (social) dialogue around the statues in Vigelandsparken and there will  be lots of activities going on at Oslo S and Rådhusplassen. Where we hopefully able to transmit information in an engaging way.

Somethings to wonder about

If there is one thing I have been doing a lot the past two years it is researching on the web. It is something I can’t stop with either. So I will share some of my findings being 3 videos.

First I got this through one of my former teachers, saying to watch it and it will make you happy. It did!! Above that it is wonderful to see that people use their creativity in settings where you wouldn’t expect it too easily.

Shortly after, I found this via swissmiss also an example of creative thinking.

and again via swissmiss this short video, impasse addressing intolerance and chances for change

long time no see

It’s been a while and soon I will start to write regularly again. Now a short response I received upon the tasks I provided during my graduation exhibit at Doga.


To clarify, the task was: make drawings around trash in the street. (in this case dog poo)

I love you more

This project is very inspirational and a nice approach to the cliche and commercial things you usually see at valentines day. A nice way to use social dialogue and think about/value their love. Maybe this could be something for me to use in an installation. Curious to see what the outcome will be check I love you more

Clod Ensemble

They keep an eye on things. They observe. They witness. They gather evidence. They place sites of political importance and key landmarks under surveillance. They watch the Watchers. Each mission is a unique response to the architecture and the people of the city. When they arrive in a city they transform it, appearing on rooftops and in doorways. In places of political or architectural interest, commandeering their own limousines, their own brass band, once even their own helicopter.  From www.clodensemble.com

I really like this and I think as inspiration this could be valuable for project in a way that they are dressed the same which gives recognition (good for the viral part). They are acting out a certain behavior and that I can connect to the problems I have received and the selfish behavior I would like to change. Furthermore the Clod Ensemble transform the setting by their presence. I would like to try this in the parks,  public transport, city centre, Karl Johan, Opera, etc.
