This blog is for sharing random streams of consciousness, overloaded to-do lists and other updates of the days passing by.

If you want a more structural impression of me, I recommend my web-page.

What once was...

OTHER STUFFPosted by SarahFJ 2012-09-27 10:59:34 now gone...but not for ever I hope!

Here's an update for all of you who have not been part of my life the past few years, I recently graduated as a scenographer from the Norwegian Theatre Academy after three years of intensive insight into everything that, to the smallest detail, can be associated with the performing arts and design.

We have had workshops ranging from dance to light, movement in space, exhibition design, modeling, multimedia as well as skill training in painting, drawing and CAD.
This type of project-based work prepares us not only for an intensive everyday life in reality but also to facilitate the ability to communicate our ideas and discuss solutions with other fields, such as light and sound. You can reach further if you both know what you want and have an idea of ​​how to fix it.

I was also smart enough to take advantage of the chance to go on exchange. smiley

I took the fall semester 2011 in Seoul, Korea, the Korea National Universety of Arts / K-Arts. It was simply, absolutely fantastic. Not only ar I challenged myself in costume design and film-making, but I also got to practice the slack line or "Jultagi" with some wonderful people.

Then I went to Copenhagen, Denmark, for a more "normal" semester, where I did two projects. An "independent production" and a "Directed production".

There might come more flashbacks later, but this is it for now. I will also put pictures from all of my projects on my web-page.

Idag har jeg startet på min første jobb som ferdig utdannet scenograf. Jeg skal bygge en modellboks* for en annen scenograf...en scenograf som er igang med å lage en scenografi...som skal være i et rom**...som jeg bygger modell av :)

Deilig å pusle med kniv, papp og linjal igjen!

*MODELLBOKS er en modell av rommet hvor en scenografi skal bygges. Man bruker den som en korrekt størrelses-referanse (vanligvis 1:25) til det som er rundt ens egen lille scenografi. Veldig praktisk, både for å skisse*** i og for å lettere kunne kommunisere ideene sine til andre.

**ROM er et begrep som her betyr et begrenset område. Dette begrensede området kan være alt fra hovedscenen på Den Norske Opera til 3x3m på gressplenen utenfor huset. Det som er viktig, er at man i modellen får med seg alle små detaljer som er spesielt med akkurat dette rommet som enten kan være hindringer eller muligheter. Kort sagt; alt man må forholde seg til innenfor området.

***SKISSE er i dette tilfellet ikke en en 3D utprøvning av diverse ideer.
