In 2017 I was approached by the ArtEZ school of arts to produce a series of video logs with regards to the time I spend in Norway for their Studium Generale of that year. The theme of the Studium Generale was Revolte, with most planned speakers being activists and rebels like
Nadja Tolokonnikova (Pussy Riot).

The result were three videos that contemplated the underlaying philosophical elements of being in the Norwegian nature, as well as what relationship these have to similar rebellious thinkers.

The first chapter concerns Degeneration: The replacement of nature by culture as a foundation of human perspectives.

Chapter two revolves around Loneliness: What it means to humans and means to be human.

The third and last chapter regards Rhythm: What it is, where to find it and my personal experience with it.
