Mjøslandsaksjonen (Steinberg Free Air Museum)

English

Steinberg is Oppland's nicest free air museum, because of the protected environments. Maihaugen is too commercial, while Eiktunet is suffering heavily from the destruction of the Hovdetoppen Hill, the sacred mountain of the town of Gjøvik. So if you visit the Gjøvik region, go to Steinberg Free Air Museum and forget the rest.

Da var jeg over på Capture One Pro 12, tok en liten runde på Steinberg og alle bildene er redigert i C1. Det at programmet er nytt synes nok på fotografiene, men får ta en overhaling når tiden er moden. Som vinterfotograf med Jacob Gløersen som mitt nye forbilde, er jeg uansett glad for at jeg tok meg turen for å fange litt av den siste vinterstemningen for i år.

Steinberg må være Opplands fineste friluftsmuseum, da det ligger helt for seg selv skjermet fra alskens styggedom. Maihaugen blir for kommersielt, og for Eiktunet på Gjøvik er det ikke noe hyggelig lenger etter skjendingen av Hovdetoppen. Gikk en tur etter folkestiene forrige dagen o…

Making the Garden — Christopher Alexander

By Christopher Alexander. Original text at First Things.


It has taken me almost fifty years to understand fully that there is a necessary connection between God and architecture, and that this connection is, in part, empirically verifiable. Further, I have come to the view that the sacredness of the physical world—and the potential of the physical world for sacredness—provides a powerful and surprising path towards understanding the existence of God, whatever God may be, as a necessary part of the reality of the universe. If we approach certain empirical questions about architecture in a proper manner, we will come to see God.
It comes from realizing that the task of making and remaking the Earth—that which we sometimes call architecture—is at the core of any commonsense understanding of the divine. Only in the last twenty years has my understanding of this connection taken a definite form, and it continues to develop every day. It has led me to experience explicit vision…

A Zen View Upon the World (Less is More)

This article is inspired by the Alexandrine pattern 134, Zen View. The pattern states: “The archetypal zen view occurs in a famous Japanese house, which gives this pattern its name.

Let’s start with listening to the wisdom of A Pattern Language (Please note that the illustrations of the original text are missing):
A Buddhist monk lived high in the mountains, in a small stone house. Far, far in the distance was the ocean, visible and beautiful from the mountains. But it was not visible from the monk’s house itself, nor from the approach road to the house. However, in front of the house there stood a courtyard surrounded by a thick stone wall. As one came to the house, one passed through a gate into this court, and then diagonally across the court to the front door of the house. On the far side of the courtyard there was a slit in the wall, narrow and diagonal, cut through the thickness of the wall. As a person walked across the court, at one spot, where his position lined up with the…

Videre har Trond Andresen en hyggelig hilsen i dag, hvor han igjen tar et oppgjør med de progressive, som har tatt kontroll over media for å forherlige egen klasse og støte oss deplorable ned i helvetet, et sted uten tilhørighet, slik det har blitt her i enga vår!

Om rasisme og antirasisme
Av Trond Andresen
"Antirasisme" kan bare bli troverdig når man slutter med den nedlatende og sjølgode moraliseringa, og anerkjenn…
