Glass blowing training

Part of the preparations for the upcoming exhibition ‘The Art of Losing Control’ at the Glas Museum of Glass Art in Ebeltoft, Denmark, has included a full-day workshop at the museum in their glass workshop. Blow glass sprinkled with sand and it’s like creating a universe.

In this exhibition artists from two continents, Europa and Asia, reflect, interpret and give the loss of control of our time an aesthetic and artistic expression, and the artists look at loss of control from many different points of view: physical and mental loss of control, ecstacy, giving up or introspection. The theme is well in line with Roepstorff’s Earth School projects.

Landart along the highway

Along the highway near Rødby, Denmark, a large-scale landscape work is to be created – where the highway towards the future Fehmarn Belt connection between Denmark and Germany crosses the landscape that agriculture has helped shape for many centuries, but which is now zoned for wild nature and recreation. The starting point is the contrasting encounter between slow, wild nature and linear infrastructure – and the work must be both visible from a distance at high speed and be experienced up close and consumed with the body and senses.

The project is one out of four initiated by the New Carlsberg Foundation and Realdania. Kirstine Roepstorff takes part in the competition in a team with the Danish landscapers DETBLÅ.

Look into the mosaic eye

Written by Aaron Moulton, curator and anthropologist

Light bends into itself, images fold and twist, representational reality flows like water.

Peeping, searching, scrying we look for answers to the everyday and the existential in technology, algorithms, data: oracles of another color, different bottle same wine. 

Divination is a lost science and yet we use it daily without knowing or wishing to acknowledge how much we revert to the intuitive impulse to “see”.

The most enlightened condition of “not-knowingness” has now…

Earth School - Classroom No. 1

Press Release

How do we orient ourselves in a new era?

In ancient times, sailors could navigate the oceans by looking up at the night sky. They had, over generations, developed an inner technology. Today, to a much greater extent, we have replaced this inner technology with an external one. One could argue that we have outsourced our inner autonomy and power.

In an expanding world of information, opinions…

Kissed by Nature

This week the exhibition ‘First There Is A Mountain’ at Wadden Tide was embraced by the forces of Mother Nature.

When Varde Municipality planned the exhibition their starting point was this quote by Quingyan Weixin, who lived 800 AD in China:

’First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.’ Indeed, one might add.

Great welding work done by POM Industries A/S!
