Houses for the intelligent birds

Townhouses for the intelligent and social birds.

Living Typography is a project of Nishant Jethi from Mumbai, India. It excists of hollow wooden 3D alphabets which also acts as bird houses. It´s a beautiful idea because trees are cut and cities are expanding. Lovely! Hope to see some here in Oslo eventually.


Anywhere But Where I Am

Foreign Fields, my new friends.

My birthday this year was not celebrated, even though I turned 35. But I was visiting family that weekend and they made a fantastic meringue strawberry cake, and the next morning there was a breakfast table decorated with the best china, white lace tablecloth, and chopped fruit (I love chopped fruit in the morning). Well when I got back to my apartment in Oslo I found a thick envelope in the mailbox. Posted from the US but with no sender I could recognize. Inside was a CD and three photos, all with hand written messages on the back. What a nice surprice. It cannot get any closer from that distance, feel I´ve gotten new friends. The two guys in Foreign Fields. And the music is beautiful, of course.

Oh, the CD was ordered by a real friend of mine, I put two and two together.

Bompas & Parr – dare where others dream

Bompas & Parr

Bompas & Parr creating America in jelly for the client Kraft.

One of the speakers at Visueltdagene in Oslo took the experience to a new level. Sam Bompas and Harry Parr are two boys who are making money on having fun (or mostly having fun, as they said). Bompas & Parr has grown from 2007 to a whole team of cooks, specialised technicians, architects, graphic designers, and administrators, and they experiment with food combined with architecture, performance and settings, and their happenings are spectacular. Check out A Culinary Odyssey which is food and experience inspired by science fiction movies, or the beautiful event The Truvia Voyage of Discovery which consists of a green lake and rowing boats on a roof.

The Truvia Voyage of Discovery by Bompas & Parr.

Yesterday at the seminar we got to taste both a crazy jelly (with all kinds of flavour in it, even gin and whisky) and food pills from A Culinary Odyssey. Fun, madness and limitless creativity should not be underestimated.

Oh all the joy Steve Jobs has given us.. Macintosh – insanely great! The smartest thing they did was to put the machine in our hearts. Who can compete with love.
