wandering in oslo

when we went last month, i hadn't been in oslo in 5 years and it seemed to be much cooler and more happening than i remembered. a lot had changed, a lot had been built (some of it by apparently blind architects, as it's a real mish-mash (more about that in another post)), a lot was under renovation. it seems that norway, with its gazillion dollar sovereign oil fund, didn't suffer from the same economic crisis as the rest of the world. oslo is a pretty and very walkable little city. they had this art thing going on along aker brygge and i took a few shots of some of the thoughts. i'm not sure what i make of them, but i kind of like that they also ended up as selfies. i was happy to be wearing my new felt hat. we need to wear hats more often, don't you think? what do you make of these quotes?

wacky theories about the pyramids are nothing new.

the danish brand of socialism is actually pretty good.

I've been Facecookized - I was looking for the "like" button......

These quotes made me think about what art means to me and what it means to be an artist. I like that they contradict each other a little. Art can be so personal and so universal. I'm taking them away way with me for more pondering.
