ABOUT THE BUS PROJECT AND OTHER STUFF 

I am happy to say that I have been very busy these last few months. Working on different projects.

I will give you first an update on the Bus Project:

Everything was going well and the recording of the video was almost done, and even though I was a bit late for the deadline I was happy with the process, but running around with so much pressure in my head made me a little careless. One day in February while working on a video I dropped my laptop while it was on, I picked it up, but slowly a cold air was filling my chest, I tried to turn the computer on, but only a message saying: "no bootable disk" showed up. This meant that the computer was broken. You all might say, ok, he might have a back up of everything... Well, I did have an old back up, but nothing about my film was backed up. I even sent the hard drive to a data forensics company , but they could only recover 1% of my 328 GB of information on the disk. 

I am taking the opportunity to advice you to have a back up of whatever you do. 

The bus project has to be animated all over again and the new deadline is the 30. of June.

I am so much looking forward to seeing the film done. I hope everything will go well.

ABOUT SAVN PROJECT

At the same time I have been working on a project called "Sagn om Savn", an outdoor ephemeral paintings exhibition, as the first step towards my research about ephemeral works, and Savn as a thematic in my work. 

Savn is a danish word that describes the concept of missing somebody or something. For me Savn describes my feeling of missing my family, friends, and things from my home country, a way of getting closer to the memories I have from my home country. 

Here are some of the paintings I made for this outdoor installation.

The Bus project

Today i am working on the "Bus Project" , this project has being a side project during the last 2 years, which I work on when ever i am not getting ready for exhibitions or educational projects.

"The bus project" is an animated short film that explores the feelings one have when moving from one place to another, on the actual moment of moving, during the actual journey.

I might admit that this project is inspired by the little i know about my father moving to the United States of America trough Mexico.

I have created This company called Inrejse which has this unique bus filed with about 20 characters that will be migrating somewhere else that their own home land. 

trough the 7, 10 minutes of length of the film I will be telling the story of about 5 characters trough sounds colors and moving images, no voices will be speaking during the film.

I plan to be done with the film in April and be shown out doors in whatever walls are available for a few hours. and then move to another location, in a way it can be seen as a form of video graffiti.

It Is so exiting, because I don't even Know how everything will look at the end. I am very much looking forward to see it.
