THE SHORT STORY ABOUT THE BECOMING OF THE BOOK " WORD BY WORD - ROW BY ROW"
In 2005 I terminated my PhD studies at Norwegian School of Economics, started Spekulatoriet and an extensive knitting production began.
Blankets, pillows, dish cloths, towels, and chair covers came to life between my fingers just knitting back and forth in the simplest way following my intuitive delight. But knitting also became a way to find peace and a precious tool when I needed to think, feel and be in something complicated.
The book is filled with pictures of my knit works accompanied by poems about creativity and meetings with ourselves and each others. The book begins from both the front and back and ends in the middle. One part is about the more mysterious and darker sides of life, and the other is about playfulness and the delight in creation. The poems are both in Norwegian and English is presented together in different patterns.
