(Untitled)

The dead Corel reefs in Biosphere 2. We visited the place in 2007. Have had a great fascination of the place for a long time and was delighted to visit the site. It has a amazing story which I urge that you tjeck out, we’re talking: sci-fi, space travel, an oil millionaire, lifestyle experimentation, an almost religious cult and a very large, quite fascinating building with a giant artificial lung read more about Biosphere 2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biosphere_2

Aquarium

Aquarium fish from Denmark’s Aquarium in Copenhagen. Fortunately there are still old-fashioned aquariums left. I recorded the films a few years ago, still do not know quite what they can be used for but I think they look fantastic, like something from a James Bond movie.

Contemporary Petrol Station, Uganda

  I visit this place in 2006, and I thought It seemed to resembles something from an art exhibition. I suppose that this idea of having space for each object is apparently reserved for contemporary art exhibitions (at least where I come from), it seemed at least as a very exotic petrol station.

Knudmose Søen – Herning, Denmark

Visited this place, this summer, especially to see the new artificial lake that has been made in connection with the new highway. I liked that they did not tried to make this lake romantic in any way. The lake is mainly intended for water motorsports use. Unfortunately, my pictures were not particularly interesting (to dramatic clouds i think). but the place is. see also : Aerial photographs from Herning http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=370081 google map link

  • This blog is a place for projects that do not fit on the main site jesper-carlsen.com because it is considered as an archive for completed artworks. It is experiments that has been abandoned or not yet found their final form. I think these experiments still bear some relevance as glimpse of the underlying practice. On a personal level it feels good to have a place for these projects and perhaps even set them free in a way. Then other might see an idea and develop it further. Its something that I would like to see from other artists as well because I think it may show something interesting.
