“What the really great artists do is they’re entirely themselves. They’re entirely themselves, they’ve got their own vision, they have their own way of fracturing reality, and if it’s authentic and true, you will feel it in your nerve endings.”
― David Foster Wallace

FROM THAT PLACE, AS SOON AS MY EYES ARE OPEN, I CAN NO LONGER ESCAPE. NOT THAT I AM NAILED DOWN BY IT, SINCE AFTER ALL I CAN NOT ONLY MOVE, SHIFT, BUT I CAN ALSO MOVE IT, SHIFT-IT, CHANGE ITS PLACE, THE ONLY THINGS IS THIS: I CANNOT MOVE WITHOUT IT. I CANNOT LEAVE IT THERE WHERE IT IS, SO THAT I; MYSELF, MAY GO ELSEWHERE. I CAN GO TO THE OTHER END OF THE WORLD; I CAN HIDE IN THE MORNING UNDER THE COVERS, MAKE MYSELF AS SMALL AS POSSIBLE. I CAN EVEN LET MYSELF MELT UNDER THE SUN AT THE BEACH-IT WILL ALWAYS BE THERE. WHERE I AM. IT IS HERE, IRREPARABLY: IT IS NEVER ELSEWHERE. MY BODY, IT’S THE OPPOSITE OF UTOPIA: THAT WHICH IS NEVER UNDER DIFFERENCE SKIES. IT IS THE ABSOLUTE PLACE, THE LITTLE FRAGMENT OF SPACE WHERE I AM, LITERALLY, EMBODIED. MY BODY, PITILESS PLACE.

Whether in business, the professions, the arts, or in personal and community life, such skills are essential in fostering The Group Projects or the Social Artistry, which will lead to constructive change. Conversely, without these skills, collaborative activity tends to degenerate into the kinds of petty bickering which gives “committees” their reputation for inefficiency and interpersonal vulnerability.
Frank E. Weinert and Rainer H. Kluwe psychologists explain that Role-Playing develops a capacity for metacognition (or dialogue with unconsciousness) the ability to think about the ways one thinks. It is a natural result of the exercise of role-distance, the shifting between the role of the part being played and the role of the actor in the conference with the director about how that part should be performed. The resulting “choosing self” is a psychological complex that represents a degree of mental flexibility that is a step beyond the ordinary rational level of consciousness because it deals with the realistic capacity to shift among some different frames of reference. It may even be that this type of mental flexibility represents the next step in the evolution of consciousness.

“OPEN UP” IS ABOUT DARING TO BE HUMBLE, VULNERABLE. AND HONEST. IT IS ABOUT DARING TO EXPOSE FEELINGS AND LETTING PEOPLE SEE THAT YOU’RE NOT PERFECT. NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE DARE TO MEET ON TOTALLY HONEST LEVEL, MASKS OFF. LIFE CAN HURT YOU IF YOU DO NOT DEAL WITH YOUR PROBLEMS PROPERLY, NEGATIVE ENERGY CAN BE PERSISTENT. WE MUST DARE TO LET PEOPLE ENTER.

” FOR TRE ÅR SIDEN GJORDE JEG ET TYPISK POPUP DRAGQUEEN-SHOW PÅ FINCKEN I BERGEN. ETTER FORESTILLINGEN TOK JEG AV MEG KOSTYMET, BYTTET DET UT MED MITT AFTER SHOW-ANTREKK, OG SAMMEN MED NOEN “TRANSER” GIKK JEG OVER VEIEN TIL UTESTEDET GARAGE. INGEN AV OSS KOM INN, MED BESKJED OM AT ”VI SLIPPER IKKJE INN FOLK I KOSTYMER”. NÅ ER JEG UTESTENGT PÅ LIVSTID, MED SAMME BEGRUNNELSE. “

” I JUST HOPE TO CONVEY SOME EMOTION TO THE VIEWERS. IF THIS HAPPENS, YOU CAN SAY THAT I HAVE ACHIEVED MY PURPOSE. I TRY TO BE VERY HONEST WITH EMOTIONS THAT I APPLY IN MY PHOTOGRAPHS. I USE PHOTOGRAPHY AS THE BEST WAY TO SHOW THE FEELINGS I CAN NOT EXPRESS IN WORDS OR DEEDS.”

” IS IT IMPORTANT TO BE A SEER? MAKE ONESELF A SEER? THE ARTIST BECOMES A SEER THROUGH A LONG, BOUNDLESS AND REASONED EXPLOSION OF ALL THE SENSES. ALL SHAPES OF LOVE SUFFERING AND ALL KINDS OF MADNESS. HE SEARCHES HIMSELF, HE EXHAUSTS ALL POISONS IN HIMSELF, TO PURE HIS UNIQUE QUINTESSENCES. A HEAVY TORTURE WHERE HE BECOMES AMONG ALL MEN THE GREAT PATIENT, THE GREAT CRIMINAL, THE GREAT ACCUSED ONE -AND THE SUPREME SCHOLAR! THUS HE REACHES THE UNKNOWN!… -THE ARTIST, A THIEF OF FIRE! “

” MUSIC WAS NOT A CHOICE FOR ME. IT IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF MY LIFE, A NECESSITY ACTUALLY. MUSIC IS MY ULTIMATE LOVE, AND I ENJOY SHARING THIS LOVE WITH EVERYONE ELSE THAT FEELS THE SAME. I GUESS THIS IS WHY I CHOSE TO DJ, SO I COULD SHARE THIS FEELING WITH OTHERS. “

” HAN VAR AV DENNE MANGEHODEDE OG BROGEDE SKARE AV VRØVLEKOPPER, ABORTERETE MISFOSTRE OG HALVDANNEDE VIKTIGPAVER SOM TROR DE VET ALT, DENNE LEGION SOM STRAKS OG PÅ ET BLUNK TILSLUTTER SEG ENHVER IDÉ SOM ER PÅ MOTE, FOR SÅ UMIDDELBART Å VULGARISERE DEN OG PÅ DENNE MÅTEN LIKE HURTIG LAGE EN KARIKATUR AV ALT DET SOM DE I NOEN TILFELLER MENER SEG Å TJENE PÅ DEN MEST OPPRIKTIGE MÅTE. “

” WITH PEOPLE BUZZING IN AND OUT OF CROSSING STREETS, THE WHOLE VILLAGE IS VERITABLY BREATHING, SWEATING AND MOANING ALL AT ONCE. YOU CAN END UP CHATTING WITH A RANDOM LADY WALKING HER DOG, AND SHE WILL NEVER END TO TELL YOU STORIES ABOUT THE TIME SHE USED TO DATE JIMI HENDRIX, THE BUM LYING ON THE GROUND WILL ASK YOU FOR A CIGARETTE AND TELL YOU SHE ONCE ENDED UP IN A CAT-FIGHT WITH PATTI SMITH. “
