EACH STONE has been taken to the atelier, painted with cobalt blue, ultramarine and prussian blue, laid back on the beach to be composed in a line as a kind of poem or letter exchange. Different lines of stones “written” with stones from different beaches on every beach, thankfully left there to continue their unique being …

TO TOUCH A STONE, to pick a stone on any beach, is almost to touch the beginning of time, the beginning of the physical world. The stones on the Danish beaches come from our subsoil and from the mountains of Scandinavia. Beach stones are up to 1800 million years old, lime stones (primarily used for this project) are about 60 million years old. Carried by glaciers and meltwater, washed and rounded to the stones we are currently holding in our hands, they are living material that stores information about water and sand and … life.

ALL STONES have been painted with nontoxic Stockmar high quality watercolour, that enables the stones to continue breathing and the rain and water to gradually wash off the paint.

ind i mellem finder jeg tegninger frem jeg har lavet folder dem på midten lægger dem sammen som sider i en bog syr dem hvorefter jeg skriver ordene i hånden som feks denne lille bog uden titel der begynder således

.

Huset ligger lidt oppe. Det er hvidt med blåmalede vinduesrammer. Og døren. En nuance mørkere og midt i facaden. Huset er stort eller i hvert fald det, man vil kalde større. To etager. Og hverken nyt eller gammelt. Bare rigtigt med sine vinduer og altanen mod øst eller syd, det kommer an på …

og slutter således

Det er klart, at jeg ikke ved noget om det. Hverken om træhuset eller stenhuset. Det er det, der er det fine ved det. Ikke helt at vide hvad det er. Hvor de er. Hvordan de ser ud. Om der er et eller to. Og om det andet hus snarere er det første.
