On my second trip to Oslo, my schedule happened to coincide with the third Innovations in Information Infrastructures workshop at the University of Oslo, so I registered. The Department of Informatics is in Ole-Johan Dahls Hus.
The primary reason that I was in Oslo was for the Relating Systems Thinking and Design 3 meeting, over a the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. In the courtyard at AHO, an new installation was just being put into place.
Saturday was a free day, so Peter and Patricia and I went over to the Norwegian Folk Museum. The Gol Stave Church dates back to 1212 A.D., moved to the current site in 1883.
The Astrup Fearnley Museum, in the temporary wing, has The Rock, a 2014 work by Tori Wranes, hanging near the entrance.
From the second floor walkway, the movement and sound of The Rock was more apparent.
Walking back through Aker Brygge is a famous “man on stilts” sculpture. It took a bit of searching to determine that the sculptor was Marit Wiklund, who created “Utferstrang” — which translates as “Wanderlust” in 1989.
Oslo is a relatively compact city that can be viewed in a few days. It’s been nice to travel with friends to see the sights.
