Skandi Acergy

By spotogspindel | July 2, 2008

DOF:  The world´s biggest offshore construction vessel!

This picture greats you in the reception area:

For the library, I wanted to make a series, where the main feature was the written word. There are people from many nations working onboard a big ship like this, and I wanted the pictures to reflect this, by using the different written languages. Not only different languages, but in different ways of writing, different alphabets. The images are once again from Austevoll, and the poem I chose for the picture, I wrote myself, as an ode to these islands. The fourth picture is written in English, can you read it? 

“On the shores of a thousand islands…”

The other languages are Chinese, Arabic, Rumanian, English, Indian, Thai and Russian. I had the poem translated, so that anyone being able to read these languages, should get a sense of Austevoll.

This picture is in one of the conference rooms:

The one below is in the mess, although you can´t really see it. It´s seven meter long! It´s a 180 degrees horizon picture of Austevoll, from south via west to north. Unfortunately I don´t have any excerts from it.

The three below hang next to each other in the Captain´s lounge.

    I got a wonderful letter, that I need to share:
    hello!

    I am an surveyor in Subsea7 currently working on Skandi Acergy. I must say that I absolutely love the paintings that You made for this vessel. I would take them all home with me!

    Thank you very much for making such beautiful pieces of art. I must admit that no painting has ever moved me in the way that yours did. Up to a level of finding the artist on the internet and writing the letter. 🙂

    I think I saw your works on Seven Sisters or maybe on Skandi Seven if I remember correctly.
    I loved the green doors 🙂

    Thank You once again and best regards from Australia.

    Wiktor
