Espen Oliver Hansen
I had a lovely conversation with Espen about the relationship between time and place and about the need to take a moment to reflect on what it is we aspire to in life.
Espen had just returned from a trip to Iceland which is one of his favorite places. The other place is Knarrbysjön. When he is in one, he thinks of the other. Both Iceland and Dalsland provide some distance from the manmade, from the spectacle of society: the game that we all end up playing in some way. Using space as a tool to create distance, he rests somewhere between the past and the future, getting a clearer perspective of how much he will play the game and to see what he really wants.
