Sometimes I wonder; Do I paint my own retina -to fall asleep to...?

"When the soul wishes to experience something she throws an image of the experience out before her and enters into her own image."
(M. Eckhart)

Det er den draumen - It is That Dream - C'est le rêve - Migrants Matter

 


This video was made for 'Migrants Matter', - United Nations Convention, 25th Aniversary, Dec. 18th 2015
Based on 'It is That Dream' - Det er den draumen - by Olav H. Hauge (Norwegian poet); When also the book 'Illustrate Our Rights' was launched.
My videos are simple - straightforward - my goal is always to be Poetic; combining my paintings with poetry and music.
And so - I am very proud of this video;
it includes Olav H. Hauge reading his own poem (archive; permission given by Bodil Cappelen)
It includes also Francois Monnet reading his authorized translation of Hauge's poem.
And it includes Nicky Bendix' music, composed expecially for this sound track.
I always use my own paintings.
I hope this presentation of poem/text and images/paintings will be a Positive contribution!
