          Music from the soundtrack Hook- You Are The Pan By John Williams “I've had so many names. Old names that only the wind and the trees can pronounce. I am the mountain, the forest and the earth. I am... I am a fawn.” Pan’s Labyrinth Revelations Chapter 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

            This is purely an experiment that coincided with some writing. "An" is the name in a fictional world I work with and there are three deitys that follow her passage through the sky. The design incorporates this three within three system.

              Aitia - the ballerina of earthquakes Aetiology (or etiology) is the study of causation, derived from the Greek word Aitia meaning ‘cause’. Many Greek legends attempt to explain natural phenomena through myth and story. This film, created using shadow puppets in a tiny suitcase, with puppetry and stop-frame animation, is a modern example and is made with heartfelt condolences for those who have suffered inexplicable tragedies.

                Countless years ago, the dark, ruthless waterfall hunter and broken superhero Black Diamond fell in love with one of his lovely prey, the tender-hearted waterfall known as Jonya Foss. The exact details of their unusual affair is unknown but we are fortunate to have these mystical fragments Black Diamond left behind  -  including cryptic drawings, photographs, love letters and home video footage - that merely hint at the length, beauty and tragedy of their story. These fragments were discovered near the now-dry beds of Jonya Foss. These artifacts have now been assembled to try to make sense of the broken narrative that was left behind. They are calling upon you dear viewers to help unravel this awkward & enchanting love story.

                  "SIRENE" video performance mini-dv, 3:30 min 2006 The camera shows me in action with a microphone mounted to a tripod in front of me. It is linked to a loud-speaker system, hence on-line. My lips are touching the microphone; this gesture provokes erotic images – but the sensuous stimulus of this image is in sharp contrast to the acoustic experiences in the video. At first irritating as an alien element, sound and image are obtaining an evocative relation during the performance and become eventually linked together. Sound and the use of voice are key elements of „sirene“. Communicating and being the artistic medium both at the same time, the body itself stays therefore connected to technical processes like feedback, oversteer and distortion.

                    "NOT A VENUS" two channel video installation 2 monitors, 2 dvd-players, plinth 2005 Two monitors show a female body in pieces – it´s extremities, the head and the feet. The video installation deals with the (visual) expectations placed on the female/ feminity and questions stereotype presentation. To the muse born from the waves my body replies with actions as a cipher of refusal and protest. A sight pure and exempt from prejudices stays difficult in regard to the female body. The (dead) marble woman as a imagery principle became an ideal in visual culture. So well reflected and so idyllically the representations of the female turn out now and then – the problem to liberate the nude from mythology rests unsolved.

                      This is part 1 of my exploration of Norse mythology. Watch part 2, [endi], here: http://vimeo.com/40003897 Description: “The images of myth are reflections of the spiritual potentialities of every one of us. Through contemplating these, we evoke their powers in our own lives” – Joseph Campbell My project engages in the exploration of traditional Norse mythology and the way these ancient myths, specifically the creation myth, explain the world beyond what we can see, hear, touch and feel. Through the means of animation and sound, I attempt to make the viewer reflect on the metaphysical aspect of traditional mythology. By creating a visual narrative through animation, but with no actual narration, I try to engage fully with the nature of the myths and evoke in the viewer some of the ‘spiritual potentialities’ that Joseph Campbell mentions; the result being an animated, and somewhat surreal, spiritual journey. This animation was the final project of my MA in Graphic Design Communication at Chelsea College of Art and Design. It has been shown at the 'Future Map 11' and 'The Name of The Game' exhibitions in London in 2012. See more of my work here: www.jagdesign.no
