Found

This I found a while ago on a bench – when the weather was a bit warmer and sunnier – when I was waiting for the bus. It is a commercial for a new movie. Nice interaction!

Workshop Lloyd

Last Monday I helped out with a workshop organised by Slowlab for the Lloyd hotel in Amsterdam.

Slowlab recently acquired space in the Lloyd for a studio as well as integrating slow concepts of attitude and sustainability in the hotel. I am looking forward to projects happening there.

On Monday there was a annual fest for the staff of the Lloyd and Slowlab was asked to playfully introduce them to concepts of slowness, as well as inviting them to contribute ideas. This was done by staging a treasure hunt in the Frankendael park! It was a great experience and as with all workshops the end result is unpredictable.

Several tags with adjectives regarding slowness where attached to trees, benches, flowers, etc. in the park. Artifacts were made from plaster, with an imprint of leaves and other natural elements and these treasures were hidden in the park. Furthermore, 3 musicians and several performers were placed in the park, ready to provide experiences of discovery! For instance, one of the performers was sitting in a tree with bottles of Cava and in this tree we had hung champagne glasses. So the finders would try to catch the cava with the glasses.

Involve Yourself

2 weeks ago Involve Yourself – an Norwegian organisation which has the aim to engage and involve youth in causes as human rights and injustice – asked me to conceptualise and design postcards, will involve people actively in the campaign they are launching now. In a brainstorm we came up with the following:

front side

back side

This I promise card hopes to encourage people to make a pledge, which can be big or small. So for instance: “I promise to be nicer to my little sister” or “I promise to turn off the light when I leave a room” or “I promise to do community work at..” etc.

The thought behind these postcards is to make the users think and reflect in a playful way:the users will write the promise at the spot and address it to themselves. Involve Yourself will send the postcard a year later, reminding you of your engagement!

front side

back side

For this card the concept is that the writer/sender asks an artist (4 famous Norwegian singers) to include his/her sentence in the artist’s new song to support human rights. The sentence will be written on the front side of the card.

The artists don’t know about this!! So the senders are contributing sentences and asking the singer to write a song with him/her. I am very curious for the results, but I think this is a perfect interface, to engage the individual – and the idol as ambassador for the cause – in a larger dialogue.

How cool is it if you can write a song together with your idol, which supports an important cause!?!

To make it playful for user and receiver, the text below is added vertically in the middle of the card.

back side

We used the same concept for King Harald, only here the sender sends in a new years resolution/suggestion for the King’s New Year’s speech. Again creating an interface between the individual and authority.

Another task they gave me was to create speech bubbles inspired by the Bubble Project of Ji Lee

Several texts of the involve yourself campaign are placed in the bubble, hoping to raise awareness about the  the problems we have at this moment and to act now. FACE IT.

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)

Sitting in a Tree

On saturday I was meeting a friend and when we were walking in St. Hanshaugen park there was this tree with a ladder. We climbed up the latter and sat for an hour in the tree enjoying the view and keeping the child inside alive. It was great to remind myself what kind of freedom of mind and perspective it gives to do things out of the ordinary. I tend to rationalize everything I want to do, what usually leads to not doing them because of the possible consequences.

The next day I went there again, but then to watch how other people were enjoying this tree.

I can recommend this tree to everyone!!
