I am invited to an artist collaboration ConAnima to create a lightinstallation with the text of the poet Ivar Orvedal. Con a'nima, ital., [mus.] sjelefullt, med varme, 'som har ande'. UtĂ¸varane kjem frĂĄ mange kantar av verden og glĂ¸dar av kosmopolitisk skaparlyst. Vi let oss inspirere av skapande milestolpar i historie og myte, men ynskjer ikkje ĂĄ repetere. Det er oss ikkje framand korkje agitasjon eller meditasjon, korkje jordskjelv eller andakt. Vi er der i den levande augneblinken dĂĄ vi frigjer vĂĄr eigen pust.
