TIME – FRAGMENT 4
I have been invited into the time boble of the clay, we have had dialogues about lines, patterns and structures,
found locally in the history, and we have agreed of re-imaging together the past in the future and have created clay artifacts
with reference to local history and the technical possibilities at the school, I have prearranged it in combinations referring back to the
inverted excavation, with which they maybe also refer to.
A famous architect Louis Khan one had a dialogue with a brick:
You say to a brick,
‘What do you want, brick?’
And brick says to you,
‘I like an arch.’ And you say to brick,
‘Look, I want one, too, but arches are expensive and I can use a concrete lintel.’
And then you say: ‘What do you think of that, brick?’
Brick says: ‘I like an arch.’
The clay and I are not into bricks, arches nor lintels we just want to re- imaging time,
remember the future and set our marks. Which bring us to our final fragment 5,
which I will ask you to help me with.

LINES OF MEMORIES
In spring 2017 I was invited for a Theodore Randall international Chair at New York State College of Ceramic Art, School of Art and Design, Alfred University.
I here had to do Art research /an art project – as well teaching a Junior 2 System class, supervise and give critique of grad Students and attend meetings. This page is presenting my art project LINES OF MEMORIES – Re imaging time-Fragment 1 out of 5 fragments all together.
It was a project in its origin based on local history, topology, archaeology and architecture presented at the opening as a guided tour containing 5 fragments:.
Fragment 1; “Landscape a video presented at Alfred Ceramic Art Museum, NY, USA
Fragment 2; “Lines” Permanent outdoor concrete earth installation
Fragment 3; “Memory” wood-ceramic Installation at New York State College of Ceramic art, School of Art and Design, Alfred University
Fragment 4; “Time” ceramic Installation at New York State College of Ceramic art, School of Art and Design, Alfred University
Fragment 5; “The End” out-door earth-ceramic Installation.
A fragment is defined as;
a part broken off or detached from
A fragment; an isolated, unfinished, or incomplete part
A fragment; an odd piece, bit, or scrap.
In my work I reflect on the nature of time and the narrative telling of local history mixed with my own personal interpretation hereof.
I am curious about how memories, founding’s and fragments or artifacts can be parts of a constructed narration of a history, a nations history, a village history and my own personal history.
I am an artist my intention is not to be an historian nor an archaeologist.
The fragments were presented as 5 installations at Alfred ceramic Art Museum. NY, USA, New York State College of Ceramic Art, School of Art and Design, Alfred University and outside in public place in front of Alfred ceramic Art Museum.
