“Silence of light” shows essence of human being as unique and perfect spirit connected to nature.
Analyzing of time motion through combination of material and light, and feelings with light. All parts interact each other by changing own material being, and it’s continuous live process, an integral part of which is human.  47 emotionally psychological portraits with intuitively-symbolical way of expression, organic compound of people with environment.
Along with light we can perceive motion of time inside each part of little life fragment. All our feelings, mental, social and emotional experiences are connected with time. It’s not a physical value. It is an experience, unique adventure of our lives.

Alt Går Bra

Alt gar bra

Hvor ofte har du muligheten til å snakke om ditt drømme-samfunn?
Måten samfunnet er organisert på avgjør alle aspekter av livet ditt: kvaliteten på helseomsorg, utdanning, offentlig transport og boligsituasjon. Andre viktige avgjørelser bestemmer hvordan samfunnet organiseres og drives, som for eksempel utviklingen av bærekraftige måter å leve på som tar i betraktning naturvern og beslutninger om hvordan vi håndterer vold, krig og fred, for å nevne noe.

Kunstnergruppen Alt Går Bra vil gjerne høre om dine drømmer, for prosjektet Den norske idealstaten.
Alt Går Bra
vil være på Kabuso tirsdag 5., fredag 8. og lørdag 9. desember for å utføre en spørreundersøkelse med Øysteses innbyggere.
Kunstnergruppen vil presentere prosjektet i Kabuso tirsdag 5.desember kl. 12.00. Alt Går Bra vil deretter være tilgjengelig på Kabuso for å gjennomføre én til én spørreundersøkelser hvor du vil få anledning til å fritt uttrykke dine ideer om din personlige idealstat.

Én til én spørreundersøkelser i kaféen, Kabuso :
tirsdag 5. desember 12.30 – 15.00
fredag 8. desember 11.00 – 15.00
lørdag 9. desember 11.00 – 16.00
