Lars Jørun Langhøien and the duck.

12. december 2014

In recent months, Langøien and some high school colleagues from the Sports College met at Sognsvann once a week to swim. When the 36-year-old and two colleagues arrived at the resort on Wednesday morning, they discovered that a duck kept them company.

- There was a thin layer of ice over the water. The spirit was strolling around on the ice, so I thought I would take some pictures of it, says Yngvil Søholt, 33, who was photographing the event.

After a few minutes, the duck disappeared under the jetty, before reappearing on the other side, where the ice was too thick for it to break through.

The three colleagues at first thought the bird would swim away to a predator nearby, but after a short while they tell that the unlucky spirit turned around in the water and apparently "gave up".

Before Søholt could think about, Langøien, who was already wearing swimwear, was out in the water.

- I stood a little paralyzed and didn't quite understand what was happening. I couldn't think much before Lars jumped out and crushed the ice to the duck. He had to pull it up ashore, give it a towel and a little mouth-to-mouth, actually.
- But I got the bath after all

In a short time, the bird was quickened, as the fantastic pictures show, but Langøien does not see himself as a hero.

- It was a slightly different experience, but I got the bath, even though it was a slightly different bath than we had planned.

- But it felt like the only right thing to do, Langøien adds.

Søholt emphasizes that the duck would undoubtedly have died if they had not intervened. At the same time, she is keen to praise Langhøien for her efforts.

- He is definitely the hero here. The rest of us were really just watching.

By Carving Into a Text, Artist Guy Laramée Finds a New Way to Excavate Meaning

“Dedo de Deus”

There’s a well-known saying that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. For Guy Laramée (previously), though, a books’ contents aren’t the only important aspect either. The Montreal-based artist repurposes encyclopedic volumes and series of dictionaries to create topographic carvings that dip into and excavate the pages, framing the physical object as a work of art in itself. Laramée’s latest projects include a piece with minuscule carved steps scaling a mountainside and another with moss-covered ridges jutting up from low valleys. His work titled “Journey to the Center of the” features two side-by-side texts with a cavernous hole bored through them, piercing entirely through to the other side.

In 2018, the artist released a TEDx talk titled “No outside,” in which he considers conceptions of art in an age that fosters a growing addiction to ideas, leaving little room for contemplation. He refers to his text-based projects as being the perfect medium for exploring his “love-hate relationship with intellectual knowledge, (his) critique of the ideologies of progress, and the idea that true knowledge could very well be an erosion,” as he explores questions about the relationship between meaning, emotion, and art, more broadly.

Additional philosophical musings can be found on Laramée’s site, while he shares more of his quarried landscapes on Instagram.

Aerial Embroidery Showcases the Hidden Patterns of Cultivated Farmland

Humble fields become abstracted artworks in thread paintings by Victoria Rose Richards. The artist uses a combination of tight, straight lines and lush French knots to emulate the rural patterning of closely-cropped fields divided by hedges and woods. Richards, who is 21 years old and based in South West Devon, U.K., draws inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounds her. “My art is influenced by my love of the environment and conservation, which I developed during my biology degree I completed this year,” Richards tells Colossal.

A lifelong artist who also manages chronic pain and Asperger’s syndrome, Richards landed on embroidery during college as a way to lift her spirits and engage her mind between classes and studying. “I pulled some nice blues and greens out of my grandmother’s old embroidery tin and had my first go at an embroidery landscape in October 2018,” Richards explains.

The artist is constantly learning new techniques to broaden her range of textures and patterns, finding community and inspiration through the global network of embroiderers who are connected through social media. You can follow along with Victoria Rose Richards’s thread paintings on Instagram.
