It’s a cruel and random world, but the chaos is all so beautiful. / Hiromu Arakawa

Chaos is a beautiful thing. The aesthetic of chaos can be seen in mathematics, in statistics, in philosophy, in politics, in anarchy, in geology, and in most aspects of our lives. Moving together with chaos, not eliminating it, can create spontaneity and surprise. Predicting chaos and celebrating it can lead us on a journey on new roads. / Izabella Petrut

Chaos is a big part of our lives, yet we do everything to pretend it does not exist. I look at chaos as both poison and fertilizer, as the complete break down of things but also as the beginning of something new and fruitful. By embracing chaos and arriving at zero, new possibilities might arise. / Malene Kastalje

The human spectrum of emotion is a bewildering thing to experience. This mess of feelings we hold inside our bodies, is it really necessary to have? If so, what else can we do, then to store them in our skin, our flesh, our memories? They make us, they kill us, and they give us joy. It is hard to show them to others. We keep them securely inside us, not wanting to feel the uncomfortableness of disappointment. But we want to share. Show hints of our own fragility, with a distorted and transparent exterior. You can look inside, if you have the same mess of course. / Olaf Tonnesland Hodne

Human life takes place between chaos and order, reality and imagination, fear and faith. This constitutive ambivalence makes life so diverse. But what is chaos and order? What is utopia and what is dystopia? And what about hell and paradise? There is no universal concept for any of these subjects.  And that is what characterizes human beings: different perceptions! I created little worlds based on my own idea of paradise as a homogeneous, energetic, silent, peaceful and fertile place. An imagined utopian landscape as a retreat of a noisy, chaotic, antisocial digital world. I created a composition of wood, moss and gemstones, which represents the fertility of the earth and the preciousness of nature. The results are surrealistic dreamy places which resemble a parallel world and spark a retreat of chaotic life while observing - a moment of aesthetic experience. / Jil Köhn
