Janne Robberstad

Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

The magical, mystical, the weird and wonderful world of books!

Saturday, June 27th, 2020

A good book is a treasure. It can take you deep inside yourself, or far, far away. To other other worlds, to other cultures, to other minds. It can broaden your horizon and it can broaden your mind, your imagination, your talents, in addition to your knowledge. It can make you forget yourself, forget time […]

Händel´s Messiah

Monday, December 4th, 2017

It´s not my traditional artistic expression, but since the blog is also inspirational, I wanted to add a post on my latest adventure. It´s been on my bucket-list for over 30 years! To join a choir and sing Händel´s Messiah. And of course the Hallelujah-choir is the highlight. It is been a favorite of mine […]

ESA!

Monday, March 27th, 2017

Best day ever! Visiting ESA ESTEC – The European Space Agency´s technical head-quarters here in Holland. Two full days of inspiration and information. Together with Mr Bernard Foing. Father of SMART-1, a real-life rocket scientist! and executive director of ESAs international Lunar Exploration Group. This is AMAZING! Our group-photo in front of the ESA space-station […]

Naoshima

Friday, October 14th, 2016

Naoshima – the little art island of Japan. Recommended by Tanja Beer, the pioneer of eco-scenography. And when I come, I land in the middle of an art-festival! The Setouchi Triennale. As you can see on the map below, it includes some island-hopping to reach over everything. But I´vé stayed here in Naoshima for two […]

Particle-physics exhibition!

Saturday, August 20th, 2016

School doesn´t really start until Tuesday, but today I had a very exciting and interesting day, volunteering to help put up an exhibition. All next week there will be a science-conference at the college, and the old auditorium is the place to be! Last night an Austrian artist/particle physicist(/ski-instructor) came to Stord and today´s task was […]

It is art

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

The kids from Sveio Art-school had a creative filed-trip to Leirvik to make art! Det er kunst directly translates to it is art. Their teacher was inspired by the upcoming embroidery-exhibition, and taught the kids to embroider cross-stitch directly onto the park-bench-chairs. And the result is SO cool! The kids are from 8 to 16 […]

Yayoi Kusama

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Henie Onstad Kusntsenter (/Artcentre) has a great exhibition these days, and as I´ve been i Oslo, I managed to visit it. It´s filled with art made by Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist, who is probably best known for all her polka-dots. Above is an early painting, an abstract picture of a net or a web. […]

Sri Lanka – ornamentation

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

The colors and ornaments are strong here in Sri Lanka, and a huge inspirational source for an artist like myself. I´ve gathered some of the pattens and ornaments I´ve seen the past week here in this post, maybe they can inspire you too. From the Rock Temple in Dambulla, fresco-paintings from the walls and ceiling.

inspiration: AnniesRags

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

AnniesRags is one of my favorite Etsy-shops! She makes unique jewelry, pieced together by treasures gathered from around the world, joined with her own self-made beads. Whenever I wear her jewelry, I hum to myself from West Side Story: “I feel pretty!” 🙂

inspiration: Jean Paul Gaultier

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

The Barbican in London hosts a very special exhibition: the art, design and work of Jean Paul Gaultier. Two of my favorite outfits. The mongolian inspired dress above and the aran knitted dress below. Gaultier is a true master in fashion design, but he´s also made costumes for several films: The 5th Element and The […]
