Norway – A Time-Lapse Adventure


This stunning time-lapse video is the result of a 15,000 km (almost 10,000 mi) road trip and tens of thousands of images taken over five months. Covering all of Norway’s 19 counties, this video takes us from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast.

The aim of this 5 minute short film is to show the variety of Norway, everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime. The video shows some of the most scenic places in Norway, such as Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, Geirangerfjorden, Nærøyfjorden and Preikestolen.

Filmed and edited by Morten Rustad
Video soundtrack composed by Jogeir Daae Mæland

Amazing Carved Landscapes in Books


For the better part of three decades multidisciplinary artist Guy Laramee has worked as a stage writer, director, composer, a fabricator of musical instruments, a singer, sculptor, painter and writer. Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall, where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures.

A bit from the artist himself:

So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are.

If you’d like to see more of Guy Laramee’s work, his next show will be April 5-29, 2012 at the Galerie d’Art d’Outremont in Montreal.
