2018 review

By spotogspindel | December 31, 2018

January sparked off the year with props-making for Mowgli at Haugesund Teater, with a weeks intermission of visiting colleagues at Berkeley University. We tried to learn as much as possible about the sea, and made a pilot-project for Global Hands On Ocean!

February I´m still in Haugesund with Mowgli. Big Boss Blue (our wrasse) on the other hand, is on tour in Bergen, at the VilVite-senter, teaching kids about the affects of plastic pollution in the sea.

March was all about landing some big projects. Like One Flew Over the Coockoo´s Nest with Bømlo Teater:

And the Undress My Ego-exhibition arranged by Stord Art-group (Kunstforening):

In many ways, April was the first month of the year, as it was the first month of the next chapter of my life. The year´s biggest adventure was starting in my new position as a PhD-candidate. And it started with an amazing travel: Visiting colleagues in Brazil and Chile, holding talks and workshops in GSO and eco-creativity. I made it home just in time to participate in the Global Hands On Ocean pilot-project.

In May I celebrated my parent´s gold wedding anniversary together with the rest of my family on a long-weekend-trip to Bournemouth, England.

With June came summer, I even swam in the ocean a couple of times this year. My favorite day was with my family at my sister´s new swimming pool.

July started off with a big wedding in the US, and continued with a weeks workshop in Greece with the CASE-project: Creativity, Arts and Science in Education.

In August Rivers.Global is born!

In September I delivered art for the elderly in Etne:

In October I brought my 6 million stitches exhibition to Bryne:

And I celebrated my first 50 years! 🙂

November was spent mainly in Kristiansand, making a Christmas show at Kilden Teater. I had the costume-design for “The boys in the Christmas-tree-house

December´s biggest event is the world premiere of One Ocean Global Science Opera:

    You’ve had quite a year! Major milestones and successes, and plenty of exciting projects it looks like. Hmmm… I think I recognize those cream colored jersey long sleeved tops used in “One flew over the cuckoo’s nest”! 😀

    Hope 2019 will be just as exciting and filled with experiences, and hope I will see you soon. 🙂
