Åse Huus teaches and tutors at all levels within the subject area Visual Communication. Her areas of specialisation are editorial design/book design, typography, visual identity, idea development and process/method. Huus has been awarded Gold in Grafill’s visual design competition The Year’s Most Beautiful Books (Årets vakreste bøker).
In her artistic research, Huus develops projects based on visual observation, wonder and ambiguity. Her project Quiet Observations addresses key questions such as: What might be the link between ambiguity as a phenomenon (in the sense of multiple interpretations) and creative processes and reflection? How can one reflect on, express and experiment with ambiguity and wonder? And – why would such an exploration be relevant in the time we live in right now? In 2016, video works from Huus’ project were shown at the group exhibition ‘Inside Wood’ in Milano, Italy: ‘Sometimes a tree can tell you more than can be read in books.’
