weekendWEEKENDWeek-End is based on the dialogue in Jean-Luc Godard's film Weekend (1967). The project can be seen as an exercise in
translation, on how original meaning is distorted, but also how new meaning is gained in the transference, and interpretation of information. The
dialogue between the two main characters were first translated to Norwegian and altered. Then the text was translated back to English and
French. The three texts were also translated to sound by typing them on a Typatune, an instrument that appears to be a typewriter, but where
every letter is a tone. The sound was then modified, and applied to a cut up, iconic sequence from the same film, in my video
Death, disaster
and expensive handbags
, 2010.




The lovely Trollkrem at their stand, where they presented my publication and video along with other artist's work, and a performance program.
