Climate Just Worldings (2024) Lina Persson
What would it mean to my artistic practice if there was a built-in limitation for me to use more resources than my share? What would a world look like, where future generations could access and confront the present with its overdraw of resources? Through different forms of “worldbuilding” like the film industry’s “storyworlds” and the “worldings” of material feminist theory these questions will be investigated.

Subliminal Throwback complete documentation (2024) Natasha Barrett
Subliminal Throwback was a site-specific outdoor 3-D audio sound installation located in the amphitheatre between Gydas vei 8 and Slemdalsveiein 11 at Majorstuen, Oslo. The work was created by Natasha Barrett as part of the Reconfiguring the Landscape Project hosted by the Norwegian Academy for Music in Oslo. Subliminal Throwback marked the end of a year-long process researching and experimenting on this urban outdoor sound landscape, and includes the application of innovative technical and artistic approaches to investigating its potentially interesting qualities - acoustic features, sounds that pass us by, or qualities too fleeting to pay heed to amidst our other thoughts and activities.
