kampen: oslo / november 2011

i discovered this yesterday close to where i live. it is made by children from kampen art nursery (kampen kunstbarnehage). currently they have an exibition of street art, and this is a part of it. they also have a lace tree on the other side of the wall. i'll try to make a picture of it some other day. both trees are made by old stuff like sweaters, scarfs and tablecloths. keep up the good work, kids :D

i've tried to make a kapibarasan 'cause i think he's so cute.

the hills are alive with the sound of mooooo

these are photos from this summer when i was in the mountains around loen, we didn't see any wild animals, but a lot of cows!

cows can be pretty scary when you are not used to them, and they are only metres away from you

blinderen (and helping a robot): oslo / september 2011

a friend of mine made this fluffy knit for me... i put it on a tree close to the university
where we both studied some time ago.

just some metres from that tree i found this little babybot lying
on the ground with his wheels spinning. he carried a flag with
the message "help me get to the digital circus at the university
of oslo" (cause there was the digital idea festival there
this day)...

so i helped him up so he could go on with his
task. as a part of the idea festival little robots
were placed in the centre of oslo and moving
straight forward were the only thing they
could do. so they needed kind people to make
them go in the right direction. the one i found
managed to go all the way. i found him just
100m away from the university, so we walked
the last bit together :)

a toad

i think i like all animals, this nice toad i actually met at a party. he was living in the garden. i didn't kiss him though, 'cause only a frog will turn out to be prince charming, and a toad would make a little less handsome one...

i didn't knit these... we had them at work for a months
time in the beginning of the summer, and they were so cute.

we found them in a little pond next to sognsvann lake,
and of course we put them back into the pond
when they had grown legs

a tiny tadpole ;)
