«The Norwegian Library» festival exhibition in the yearly literature festival in Odda. The book arrived fresh from print, just in time!
Presentation of «The Norwegian Library»
I thought it was going to be a short radio interview, but then two reporters showed up, with both mic and TV camera. It was quite intimidating. But Frode Grytten accompanies my stuttering beautifully.
I am still working on the project about the norwegian libraries, and more than a year left for the book to be out. But with a little help from Jørgen Brynhildsvoll I made a book dummy that was lucky to be nominated for the Nordic Dummy Awards. I'm excited about the reactions from people who are looking at the sample of the project.

After decades of military dictatorship, the people of the sorely tested country will go to the polls 8th of November. It is hoped to be the first free and fair elections in 25 years. Regardless of the results, there will be a long and difficult journey before the dreams and hopes of the people can be fulfilled. Before and after the election my work «Dreams of a democracy», will be exhibited at the large square at University of Oslo's campus. The project is drawing a more complex picture of the conflict lines in the rapidly changing country, than the simplified story about the Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi against a cruel regime, that most people know. In addition to exhibit, the work will also published in three major Norwegian newspapers and magazines on and around election day.
Thanks to Knut Bry for taking some photos from the opening.
Some stories published after three rounds in Myanmar over the last two years.
