Margaret West, 31 August. (...) An auspicious day, with thunder storms. I have not seen or heard news from the world for five days. I presume the slaughter continues.. It will end in silence, in any case. The lies and invective will darken further into silen.

Lucy Sarneel. (...) Later on two pieces of mine were talked about and it’s amazing how the maker’s intentions reach the viewer. Also this way of approaching other one’s work is free from ‘judgment’, a very nice way of commenting!(...).

Anna Unsgaard, Tuesday . It has been a very intense day, very funny and scary. I just have to sit and look into the wall for a while to melt all impressions.. I`m always slow in the start and need a lot of time doing nothing.. Maybe I have a dream this night.
