1 place 33 rooms “Memory, including collective memory, is linked to houses. When we eradicate a place in the exterior world, we lose a major pathway into our own history.” Lena Lindgren, Morgenbladet, 2. November 2012 The project is based on a real place, a house in Oslo. I am interested in how our memory connects with places and houses, in expanding our understanding of what a house and a place are, seen from the perspective of our own cultural background, time and history – and in the perceptions and experiences that are associated with it. In the significance of how the rooms are organised in relation to each other and what happens if the room is freed from the context in which it stands. It is rare to experience an isolated room that doesn’t relate to anything else, torn from its place, time and spatial context. The neutral room simply doesn’t exist. A key aspect of architecture is the experience of going from one room to another. The way the rooms are organised in relation to each other affects the sense of what it is like to be in the house. From the starting point that architecture begins with a single room, I have explored what criteria a space has to fulfil to be called a room and how big it has to be. Everyone relates to rooms – whether it is a private room like a bedroom, kitchen, dining room, or a public space such as a café, library or railway station. The work comprises six physical installations, plus the book and archive “33 fortellinger” (33 stories).

1 sted 33 rom "Hukommelsen, også den kollektive, er knyttet til steder. Når vi utsletter et sted i den ytre verden, mister vi en hovedvei til vår egen historie." Lena Lindgren, Morgenbladet 2.Novembe 2012 Prosjektet har utgangspunkt i et reelt sted, et hus i Oslo. Jeg er interessert i hvordan vår hukommelse knytter seg til steder og hus og i å utvide forståelsen for hva et hus og et sted er, sett i sammenheng med dets egen kulturbakgrunn, tid og historie – og i de opplevelser og erfaringer som er knyttet til det. I betydningen av hvordan rommene er organisert i forhold til hverandre og hva som skjer med rommet om det fristilles fra sammenhengen det står i. Sjelden har man opplevelsen av et isolert rom som ikke står i forhold til noe annet, løsrevet fra sted, tid eller fra en romlig sammenheng. Det nøytrale rom eksisterer ikke. En viktig opplevelse av arkitekturen er opplevelsen av å gå fra et rom til et annet. Hvordan rommene er organisert i forhold til hverandre påvirker opplevelsen av hvordan det er å være i huset. Med utgangspunktet - at arkitekturen begynner med det enkelte rom - har jeg undersøkt hva som skal til for at noe kan kalles et rom, og hvor stort det må være. Alle mennesker har et forhold til rom. Om det er private rom; som soverom, kjøkken, spiserom eller offentlige steder som kafeen, biblioteket, og jernbanestasjonen. Arbeidet består av seks fysiske fremstillinger, og av boka og arkivet ”33 fortellinger".
