Suspense tearing me apart
take your time and tease my heart
i really don’t even know your name
i gotta know if you’re meant for me

The Fantastic Four: Anne, Maren, Agnes and Voelve

Vis større kort

Museet for kunst i det offentlige rum (KØS) er på Danmarkstour (er det egentlig et dansk ord?), og jeg er fan <3.

I den forbindelse har de udskrevet en konkurrence om et nyt mindesmærke

Svaret er et rungende NATURLIGVIS! skal ikke bare Danmark, men hele verden, have et nyt mindesmærke.

Men medens KØS tourer Danmark rundt, så er der nogle der er ved at opføre et lige foran næsen på dem, jeg tænker på Byhave69, i øvrigt vil JEG ikke deltage i KØS konkurrence som individ, men jeg vil gerne samarbejde med andre om det, og det er det de kære #byhave69 mennesker gør – Do It With Others eller #DIWO – lige foran KØS’ næser!

I øvrigt kunne man da mene at KØS bare kunne have googlet det, og så, måske fundet mine gamle forslag til nye monumenter, men vi tager den lige for prins Knud.

  1. Marmorkirken – der er INGEN skulpturer af kvinder, her en de nominerede
    Marmorkirken - statues

  2. Jagtvej 69 – der stod der en bygning der var et monument TIL kvinder, det var nemlig her det, den 27. august 1910, blev vedtaget at der skulle indstiftes en international demonstrationsdag for kvinders rettigheder. Det skete på den 2. Internationale Kvindekongres, en international kvindekongres for Anden Internationale i København, i Folkets Hus på Jagtvej 69

  3. Og så en ny, i familie med Marmorkirken, Frue Plads har heller ingen monumenter af kvinder og inden i Vor Frue Kirke er der også kun mænd, omend englen med døbefonden er noget androgyn.
    Man kan selvfølgelig argumentere med at kirken og pladsen er tilegnet “Fruen”.

Mit forslag er al sin enkelthed at opføre tre kunstværker, gerne skulpturer, dedikeret til tre forskellige og ekseptionelle kvinder, vi kalder det

Light my fire

De tre kvinder kunne være nogle af dem jeg tidligere har foreslået:

Og så en ny nominering der er lidt for oplagt til #byhave69.

Are we not men? We are #D-I-W-O! We must repeat D-I-W-O! W-I-D-O killed the D-I-Y star W-I-D-O killed the D-I-Y star!

Er der nogle der vil være med til at konkretisere mit forslag? Så lad os “Do It With Others aka #DIWO”.

Vi tager lige lidt Natasja med en passende titel, det var jo hende der lærte mig at danse, og vi fik Amalfi-kystens citronlunde til at ryste sammen! Jeg savner dig!


Sådan så jeg ud den sidste gang jeg så Natasja, den 14. august 2004 <3

Her er mine mindeord over Natasja:

Fun with “Storify” – from micro-blog to macro-blog

Friday, January 25th, 2013

As you might have noticed, I’ve recently begun using “Storify”, and I like it a lot.

From the About page on Storify.com

Storify helps making sense of what people post on social media. Our users curate the most important voices and turn them into stories

This is my “Storify”-profile

A common use case would be to “Storify” all tweets tagged with a specific tag, or all tweets from a given user, creating a macro blogentry out of micro blogentires in a blink of an eye.

I’d like to describe another use case, which is how to enhance an article, by extending it using” Storify”.

This week VisitCopenhagen published a nice article about the famous philosopher Søren Kierkegaard’s Copenhagen, it was great, but as always, they only link to articles within their own portal, I felt that “something” was missing”.

This is the article on Søren Kierkegaard that VisitCopehagen has on their website. I’d like to “Storify” it by adding more “stories”, or what I’d like to call that micro-blog entries, to the article.

Søren Kierkegaard Storify

Søren Kierkegaard Storify

The first such microblog entry I wanted to add was the Wikipedia entry for Søren Kierkegaard.

I used “Storify” for iPad, which is great, so I just selected the Globe icon and entered the URL for the Wikipedia article, now I could add the article.

Here’s a screenshot after I’ve added links to both the VisitCopenhagen and Wikipedia articles
VisitCopenhagen plus Wikipedia

I added links to Foursquare too, as well as my own comments.

I think this resulted in a nice macro-blog article, that adds significant value to the article from VisitCopenhagen, but I’d let you be the judge on that.

For convenience nothing really beats “Storify”, my main concern is that you buy into their file-format.

You can choose to save your story to your blog though, and it looks like Storify exports everything to HTML.

This was just one example of a workflow that enhances articles written by others, another example is knowledge sharing, a good example of that would be my article on #postPC, my experiences trying to replace my laptop with an iPad and a mobile.

Wishlist and a warning

The only thing I really miss with “Storify”, is the ability to collaborate on stories online, and I discovered a major problem with this. Since “Storify” doesn’t really support collaboration, I experienced that I, after finishing editing a story on my Mac lost that version because I had the story open on the iPad too, so auto-save replaced my final copy.

Best practice is not to leave a story open in the iPad editor, by always selecting “My Stories” before editing on another computer.

“Storify” is fun and makes it easier to create blog-posts, which is good, I’m not sure if the readers agree 4.5/5 stars!

Kender du det? “Artist Takes Every Drug Known to Man, Draws Self Portraits After Each Use”

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

For nylig blev min opmærksomhed rettet mod dette projekt

Artist Takes Every Drug Known to Man, Draws Self Portraits After Each Use

Altså en kunstner der tegner et selvportræt, efter at han har taget et stof.

På Facebook var der så en der stillede spørgsmålet, om der var nogle der kunne genkende sig selv?

Min første reaktion var at det kunne jeg ikke, men da jeg så kiggede siden igennem, gik det op for mig at listen over stoffer også inkluderede receptpligtig psyko-farmaka.

Det er mere min hjemmebane, eftersom jeg har været diagnosticeret med bipolar affektiv sindslidelse, det der nok er bedre kendt som manio-depressiv, siden 2005, og i den forbindelse har jeg taget to af de stoffer der er på listen, nemlig Zyprexa og Seroquel.

Zyprexa

Zyprexa er et anti-psykotisk stof, og det er det stof Psykiatrisk Center Nord i Glostrup (tidligere Nordvang), er under anklage for at have uddelt for meget af

Forsker rystet: Dobbelt op på psykose-medicin

Helt op til 100mg gennem længere tid. Jeg har selv været oppe i de niveauer (80mg), hvilket bestemt kan være nødvendigt efter psykoser. Min sag har været undersøgt, men der var ikke noget at komme efter.

Zyprexa tegningen viser folk der står i kø for at modtage deres medicin på en psykiatrisk afdeling, antager det er i USA. Det foregår dog normalt ikke på den måde, altså at man stiller sig i kø, når man får medicin på en psykiatrisk afdeling i Danmark, i hvertfald ikke på Glostrup. På Glostrup er det lidt mere menneskeligt, man kan i et tidsrum selv henvende sig, eller man kan vente til medicinen kommer rundt på en vogn. Dette er en af de ting der fungerer rigtig godt.

Hvis jeg skulle beskrive effekten af Zyprexa, så er at den skaber ro, og man sover rigtig meget, hvilket er yderst nødvendigt efter en manisk/psyktisk episode.

Zyprexa er et høj-teknologisk produkt, på hospitalet får man det som regel udleveret som en citrongul smeltetablet. Kunstneren skriver “Zyprexa: worth the wait”, det vil jeg nok ikke rigtig give ham ret i, men ingen tvivl om at det virker mod psykoser. Der er desværre også voldsomme bivirkninger, f.eks. forhøjet kolesterol.

Seroquel

Tegningen af effekten af Seroquel synes jeg rammer ret præcis hvordan jeg selv havde det, da jeg tog det. Jeg brød mig bestemt ikke om det, jeg følte det som jeg var i en “osteklokke”. Jeg tog dog også to andre slags medicin samtidig med Seroquel, så billedet kan jo være det er mere kompliceret.

Lithum

Lithium mangler på listen. Jeg kan skrive under på at det virker, det skaber orden i kaos. Hvis jeg skulle tegne effekten af lithium når man er manisk eller psykotisk, ville det være noget med et puslespil der blev samlet, eller måske fliser/brosten/legoklodser der bliver lagt.

Lithium er det psyko-farmaka der er det vigtigste stof i min terapi. Lithium modvirker manier og evt. psykoser.

Kender jeg det?

Jeg burde jo lave nogle selvportrætter af hvordan det føles at tage de stoffer jeg har prøvet. Jeg har faktisk lavet en del tegninger under nogle af mine indlæggelser, de fleste gik desværre tabt sidste år, og ingen af dem var selvportrætter. Men jeg har vist fundet ud af hvad det er der er udfordringen her :-).

Det er ikke rart at skulle tage stoffer, men det er nødvendigt, og jeg skal muligvis fortsætte med at tage dem resten af livet, så jo, jeg kan godt genkende mig selv.

Working Class Hero by John Lennon

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
Till you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they’ve tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can’t really function you’re so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and class less and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There’s room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

Planning for Kulturnatten 2008 (Copenhagen Night of Culture) despite elitist selection practices by organisers

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Kulturnat2008It’s time for the yearly Copenhagen event “Kulturnatten”, or “Night of Culture”, and I’m basically done planning for it.

At the bottom of this post, you’ll find a list of events I’ve saved to my profile on kulturnatten.dk, unfortunately they don’t have a RSS feed or a URL that I can share, so I had to copy/paste/edit the list :-(.

I’m planning to attend the events below, but I usually stray, and end up in strange places, my recommendation is to just go with the flow, and stay in places longer than you originally planned for, if you feel “good vibes”.

Last year the high point for me, was a visit to the old shipyard crane on Holmen, which is back this year, and Ars Nova in Marmorkirken, which isn’t :-(.

The events hit by elitism
I’ve been a huge fan of Kulturnatten for several years, but this year the organisers has decided to limit the official program, and has weeded out some events that had been running, successfully for several years, for instance the event by IT Politisk Forening.

I’ve been noticing that Kulturnatten over the years has become more and more like a carnival, and that was somewhat annoying, but I think that the strict selection of “relevant” events is an example of elitism.

This being said, the Kulturnat is an impressive show of strength, and I’ll keep on attending, even though I strongly disagree with the new policy of the organisers.

List of events I’m planning to attend:

Aldrig mere
vil jeg se
du er kold
kold som sne
og vinden blæser

Altid væk
i en sky
der er så stort
i min by
og du er lige så grå og død
her er ikke noget at lave

Du er åh
åh så skøn
men kun sne
fra din mund
og dine øjne skifter
fra grøn til rød

Bare vi to ku få det godt
hos dig er jeg sagt op
hos dig er der heller
intet arbejde af få

Altid væk
i en sky
der er så stort
i min by
på hånden blæser vinden
et sekund
før alting synker væk

Done “shopping” for events for the Copenhagen Kultur Natten 2007 – it WIIL be GREAT

Friday, October 12th, 2007

 Media(345,1030) Front Illu 2007Today October 12th-2007 is the day of the cultural event of the year in Copenhagen, “The Night of Culture” or Kulturnatten, and I’ve just finished “shopping” for events.

You can build a custom program on the web-site, unfortunately it doesn’t have a URL or a feed so that I can share it directly with you.

This year it seems like my theme will be Passion, Science and Christianity. Below is a list of events that I’ll try to mange to attend – it will be tough, and I’ll let the “Instincts be my shepherd” and stay for long in the places where I feel good vibes, and I’m very confident in my instincts.

It does look like my fix-points this year will be Kastellet, Botanisk Have, Humanistisk Fakultet, Glyptoteket and Marmorkirken. The previous years I had an extensive program as well, but I ended up spending hours at the Copenhagen HQ of The Danish Refugee Council, but since they’re not open this year, I might manage more.

Really there’s only ONE event I’m not going to miss, and that is Ars Nova singing English renaissance music in Marmorkirken – last year they were spectacular, and this year they’re issuing a new CD on the Kulturnat, I’ll be first in line to get a copy.

From the previous years I’ll HIGHLY recommend the Exhibition at Thorvaldsen’s Museum, the lights are turned off, and the statues are illuminated, it’s just fantastic, for me it’s been there done that this year however.

Rundetaarn is always too crowded, and the midnight concert this year is just too mainstream for my taste, but I loved it two years ago, and the storage room above the church is just wonderful.

So I wish you all a great Kulturnat, you just have to love Copenhagen for having the energy to set up such a massive event. And strange things happen on the Kulturnat, if you just let your senses guide you, and while you wait for my next blogpost, you can read about my experiences of the last two years here:

Events I hope to cover in 2007 – prioritised order – but my full intended program is 4 pages long:

Your “Pyramid” is beautiful, but we’ve just invented the “Arch”

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

Balancing the Pyramid of KhefrenSo you thought you could build an economy on other peoples work, and even have the audacity to charge them (that is us) for it!!!

Well! You have your “Pyramid” – and it’s beautiful – unfortunately for you we‘ve just invented the “Arch”.

So Google will remain a fantastic monument, but we‘re building the Aqueducts, Viaducts and last but not least the beautiful temples.

And how come Google and all the other search engines, seems to ignore the copyright all together? No let’s boycott Google, and ask to be delisted, or have them block commericals.

So let’s put Google and all the SEO “creeps” out of business, and get rid of the commercial search engine, “itsy bitsy spider, walk along the web” – it’s not that hard to build a better google than google. Where we’re going we don’t need Google.

Civilisation has just gone out of beta!
