ByVerkstedet (NO) x USE academy (TALK)
— Creating Bottom-up Urban Projects
ByVerkstedet runs an open-container workshop in Oslo that creates participatory projects that engage the local community. They work with design, crafts, architecture and urban development and explore new ways of collaboration between residents, the private and the public sector.ByVerkstedet works in public spaces where they hosts events and run creative workshops such as Ride On, Hijab & Totes and K1 design studio with local youth. They aim to inspire creativity and practical skills, as well as finding ways to help improve and create sustainable communities, neighborhoods, public spaces and cities.
ByVerkstedet is a non-profit organization established in 2013. ByVerkstedet is currently located at Tøyen, a neighbourhood in Oslo. With its over 50.000 inhabitants (larger than many Norwegian towns), Tøyen is the most densely populated area in the city and a center for cultural diversity.The talk will be a presentation of how ByVerkestedet came to life, based on local know how, volunteerism and steely determination, to developing into an organization working and interacting locally on multiple levels. Through a showcase of various projects, such as Hideaway & Drivhuset - where pupils at two local schools got to design and build their own hangouts, Sykkelfix - a bike workshop run by local youth, and Tool Pool - a concept where people can borrow tools for free at their local library and more, we will share our struggles and our successes.

Cognitive Fluidity er en installation med tekstilet som bærende element hvor rummelighed, perception og lys skaber en flerdimensionel sanselig oplevelse.
Med rødder i matematiske, biologiske og kosmiske fænomener, der i naturen skaber mønstre, farver og former, arbejder Siff skiftevis systematisk og intuitivt. Projektet udvikler sig organisk og åbent for udefrakommende påvirkninger og faktorer.
“I denne udstilling udforsker jeg et absurd og surrealistisk parallelt univers, hvor kroppens tilstedeværelse spiller en aktiv rolle og udfylder det skrigende tomrum. Instinktivt prøver jeg at visualisere mit eget tekstile kosmos. Du inviteres til at træde indenfor og jeg spytter dig brutalt men kærligt ud på den anden side.” siger Siff.
Udstillingen åbner fredag d. 8/12 kl. 16-20 i Non-space, en eksperimenterende designplatform med adresse på Rosensgade 11, Aarhus C.
Lørdag d. 9/12 kl. 16 - 20.
Søndag d. 10/12 kl. 12 - 17
Mandag d. 11/12 kl. 14 - 19
Tirsdag d. 12/12 kl. 14 - 19
Siff Pristed (1984) er tekstildesigner med base i København. Siff arbejder intuitivt, abstrakt og eksperimenterende med stemninger, farver og former. Hendes arbejde er en subjektiv tolkning af verden omkring hende, uden umiddelbar orden eller kontinuitet.
Siff har en MA i tekstildesign fra Designskolen Kolding, og har bl.a. udstillet på Ventura Lambrate (Milano, IT), Reitir (IS), R&R Studio (Los Angeles), Creativity World Forum (DK), Vess (DK), Kvit Galleri (DK), Officinet (DK) og Henrik Vibskov Boutique (DK).
Projektet er en fortsættelse af et ophold på tekstilværkstedet på Statens Værksteder for Kunst i sommeren 2017, og er støttet af Statens Kunstfond og Esther og Jep Finks Mindefond for Arkitektur og Kunsthåndværk.
“The Serpent King is a theatrical installation on the transformative power of magical thinking. Katarina Henriksson mixes objects, words and sounds in immersive sceneries. She will turn non–space into an Arcadian landscape and tell the visual story of the Snake King, in the tradition of the Metamorphoses by Ovid. Remember, things are not always what they appear to be...”
In Medias Res: A Big Bang. Something sheds its skin and turns into something else. From a cosmic cloud rises The Serpent King. The Serpent King revenges its enemies by wrapping around their bodies and turning them into stone. Each individual stone becomes a building block in The Serpent King’s temple, doomed to contemplate their destiny for an eternity with no other ability than to weep streams of deep blue tears of repent. The Serpent Kings gathers the tears in a bottomless pool, feeds on and bathes in the tears. The Serpent King is cruel but fair.
The story of The Serpent King and installation is a big cut-up from literary - and visual material: Ovid - The Metamorphoses; Orlando - Virginia Woolf; Drottningens juvelsmycke - CJL Almqvist; Idea of a Fortress of Solitude; Stuff turning into other stuff in general; The Legend of The White Snake - Japanese myth; Revenge stories Babylons hanging gardens.
Katarina Henriksson is a swedish artist living and working in London.
For the past 20 years Aðalheiður S. Eysteinsdóttir has built wooden sculptures about people, personality, relations and respect for life. During her residency at non-space she will create an involving art installation about movement, relation, life and nourishment in cooperation with local smith and architect Mads Hvidkjær Binderup. During her stay Aðalheiður S. Eysteinsdóttir will give a performance called Nourishment and give a lecture about her art.
Opening Friday 20/10 at 16h00 until 20h00. The performance will be ongoing.
Open 21/10-28/10 14h00-17h00. Performance daily at 15h00.
JANE KLOSTER (DK) x USE academy (TALK)
— How can design break down hierarchy?
In 2016, Langkaer Gymnasium was one of the most controversial schools in Denmark because of its decision to divide students into classes by ethnicity. Social designer Jane Kloster set her sights on improving dialogue and mutual respect in the school. Through the project ‘Transforming Culture’, students, staff and administrators were involved in improving the culture through strategic work on building new relations. Through a series of social design methods she got stakeholders to work together to radically change the communication and culture in the school, most notably by experimenting with the design of the cantina and study areas of the school.
“Understanding users is the primary drive in my work as a designer. By researching motivations and actions I find the right places to start strategic work toward positive change.”
Jane Kloster is a social designer with a passion for people, process, and relations. She works creatively and systematically to inspire users through innovation process.

JANE KLOSTER (DK) x USE academy (TALK)
— Hvordan kan design nedbryde hierarkier?
I 2016 var Langkaer Gymnasium en af de mest kontroversielle skoler i Danmark, på grund af sin beslutning om, at opdele studerende i klasser efter etnicitet. Social designer Jane Kloster satte sig for, at forbedre dialogen og den gensidige respekt på skolen. Igennem projektet 'Transforming Culture' var studerende, medarbejdere og administrationen fra skolen involveret i at forbedre miljøet gennem strategisk arbejde med at skabe nye relationer. Gennem en række sociale designmetoder fik hun interessenter til at arbejde sammen om at ændre kommunikationen på skolen radikalt, bl.a. ved at eksperimentere med indretningen af skolens kantine og studieområder.
“At forstå brugere er det primære drive for mit arbejde som designer. Ved at forstå deres handlinger og motivationer er jeg i stand til at finde de rigtige åbninger for udvikling og dermed skabe en positiv forandring.”
Jane Kloster er en social designer med passion for mennesker, processer og relationer. Hun arbejder kreativt og systematisk for at inspirere brugere via forandringsprocesser.

Monthly podcast and radio listening event at non—space.
October theme: Sound
Come and listen to a few podcasts around the theme "Sound" after work or school. There will be coffee and tea, tables and chairs, and things to draw with. Bring pillows or blankets if you want to make things cozy, and whatever else you might want to do quietly while you listen (i.e. knitting or rubik's cube solving).
This is the second event in the series, with two more happening before the end of 2017. We look foward to having you!
JIGGLING ATOMS (talk + workshop)
Jiggling Atoms is a multi-disciplinary illustration project exploring the wonders of physics with an emphasis on learning, dialogue, knowledge exchange, and collaboration. Jiggling Atoms explore the role of visual communication in physics and the use of abstract and creative thought in science.
Founded on their shared belief in cross-disciplinary education and a desire to create and design experiences through which people can learn about the sciences and experience interesting works of art, design, and illustration, Jiggling Atoms seeks to create and nurture a positive, fun relationship with learning both about science and developing creative skills.

Most of our everyday life is invisible: the air we breathe, the chemical reactions in your body, the heat from the sun, gravity, electricity, radio waves, the calculations done by your computer. How these invisible things work can only be understood through their effects, which scientists seek to describe through experiments and simulations. Developing ways to describe knowledge of the material nature of reality that is discoverable through experiments and simulations is extremely tricky – and finding ways of explaining what we understand about nature is something humans have always endeavored to do. Be it 8th-century visions of the cosmos or advanced computer simulations, be it a graph or an oil painting, creatively exploring modes of representation or ‘ways of seeing’, ways of explaining and ways to describe what we understand about nature is a source of great inspiration and inquiry. Our talk will explore some of the historical imagery that accompanies our descriptions of nature, and how our metaphorical description in the language of physics helps us to grasp its complexity. We will critique inconsistencies, as well as showcase some of Jiggling Atoms’ landmark projects by presenting a selection of Jiggling Atoms contributors. From moving image, interactive art, books, objects, effigies and prints, public exhibitions, participatory workshops, public discussions, and debates – we will discuss how these different visual or expressive modes operate in terms of learning and understanding. We will also describe our practice and how we operate as a collective, explaining our approach to public engagement, collaboration and education in science and art, the need for inclusive, fun projects and how this can empower learners of all kinds.
WORKSHOP: Alien Civilisations
Join Jiggling Atoms in an exploration of exoplanets, where you will create ‘biologically feasible’ alien beings and consider how your science fiction world could be self-consistent in accordance with our understanding of the natural world.
We explore the physical nature of a collection of exoplanets discovered by Kepler and speculate as to what kind of life forms or civilizations could inhabit these other worlds. With a science fiction expert and anatomical artist at hand to guide you, your creation will result in an artifact such as a drawing, sculpture, costume or mask. (edited)
The Kepler space observatory has been on the hunt for habitable planets for the last eight years and over 1,000 exoplanets – planets orbiting another sun(s) – have been discovered by the Kepler space telescope, which reached its orbit in 2009. The dazzling and truly bizarre worlds that it has discovered have not only challenged our previous ideas of planet and solar system formation but has expanded speculative dialogues that challenge our preconceptions of what extra-terrestrial life forms could be like biologically. Johannes Kepler (after whom this NASA space observatory is named) was a German mathematician, astronomer and key figure in the 17th-century scientific revolution. Although he is best known for his laws of planetary motion, he also wrote one of the first ever pieces of science fiction, The Somnium, in 1608. This is a fantastical tale about a journey to the island of Levania, which is, in fact, the Earth’s moon.
Natalie Kay-Thatcher is an illustrator, bookseller, educator, and founder of Jiggling Atoms. Having spent many years with an obsessive fascination for science and science fiction, her work explores the merging of science and imagination with graphic storytelling, printmaking, and artistic workshops. Natalie is currently on the Art-Science MA at Central Saint Martins and her cosmic online bookshop Somnium Books is an excellent reference for the diverse and fantastic history of science fiction.
Jennifer Crouch is an artist, teacher, researcher and maker. She is currently an artist in residence at UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI) developing a project about the biomedical imaging process using a Dobby Loom and ant type of mathematics called a Fourier transform. Jennifer founded a project called Making in Transit as part of the Arctic Circle Residency 2016 where she researched cartographic technology from Ammasalik in Greenland resulting in a collection of hand carved wooden maps. Jennifer has a background in Physics and Medical Illustration; she worked as a Medical Artist at St George’s Department of Anatomy and is currently studying a MSc in Analytical Bioscience at Birkbeck University.

Under navnet Ensemble Pegasus har AUT – Aarhus Unge Tonekunstnere – samlet danske og franske musikere, der vil sætte fokus på at give unge komponister og musikere et stærkt netværk på tværs af grænser.
Projektet kalder vi ‘Entre deux mers’ (“Mellem to have”) og ensemblet vil arbejde med sammenhængen mellem ny kompositionsmusik og improvisation. Det primære motiv i koncerten vil være to kompositioner, hvor improvisation vil blive brugt til at skabe en ramme og en kontekst mellem værkerne, og mellem musikerne og publikum. Publikummet, der gennem lyd vil blive eskorteret gennem hele koncerten, bliver præsenteret for musik og lyd, som rumlige fysiske fænomener.

Non-Space officially opened the doors to a new experimental culture production platform last year on September 2nd. One year later we would like to gather everyone we have worked with and who has supported the mission or experimented with us and celebrate all that we have done together. There will be drinks, finger food, and some good vibes to set the mood and celebrate together.
Of course this wouldn’t be non—space if we didn’t combine and remix the idea of a celebration, so we are combining it with a retrospective exhibition of the past year to take a peek back at everything that has been here. This will be a mixed media exhibition showcasing all the different kinds of interesting and exciting things we have had the pleasure of doing this year.
Lastly its time for an update on what non—space actually is so there will be a part of the space dedicated to showing you the future of non—space and what it is we are doing next. non—space will continue to be a platform for contemporary intersections, combining and remix fields or mediums to create local culture experiments.
We look forward to seeing you here at Rosensgade 11, Friday September 8th from 17:00 to reconnect and celebrate one year of experiments!

Krydspres er et interaktivt kunstprojekt der behandler det pres unge eksponeres for i en tid hvor kravene til os selv og hinanden aldrig har været synligere grundet de sociale medier.
Oplev interaktive installationer bestående af elementer som projiceringer, spejle, lys og lyd.
Værkerne fremstiller det, vi alle er - helt almindelige og vidt forskellige.
Krydspres inddrager publikum ved at opfordre iagttageren til selv at bidrage til værket med sin egen personlige stemme. Du har derfor som besøgende muligheden for at sætte sit eget præg på udstillingen.
Udstilling giver plads til egen fortolkning uden at være hverken bedrevidende eller belærende. Det er et frisk visuelt og auditivt pust til en aktuel og vigtig debat uden konklusioner om rigtig og forkert.
Emma Sennels og Dittes Zebitz studerer begge til dagligt på filmuddannelsen Multiplatform Storytelling and Production, og dette er deres første udstilling. De har derfor hovedkuldse og frygtløse kastet sig over, at skabe en udstilling fra bunden med alt hvad det indebærer.
Projektet er lykkedes med støtte fra Via film & transmedia og Non-space Aarhus.
Åbningstider for udstillingen:
Torsdag d.24/8, fernisering kl. 16.00 - 20.00
Fredag d.25/8 - søndag d. 27/8 kl. 14.00 - 18.00

'It's Never Windy In Paradise' uses Aarhus' iconic building 'Isbjerget' as a stage for a performance and exhibition space. The work intends to consider and reflect on ways of living and takes place from 12.30 - 17.30. Screenings of three films will continously run in the carpark basement.
The Isbjerget's sterile perfected setting provides an eerie stock image reality where ways of living and human behaviour slip into the constructed simulation of the render or stock image. The work intends to slip into these constructed simulations and glitch into reality, where the viewer is unable to distinguish the difference between the performance and non performance, performers and non performers.
'It's Never Windy In Paradise' is a new collaborative work by Icelandic artists Arnar Ómarsson, Brák Jónsdóttir and British artist Sean Millington and hosted by Non—space, Aarhus. The work consists of a live choreographed performance, a prerecorded film of the performance, and a computer generated simulation of the performance. The three forms interweave with each other, where the performers on occasions cross paths simultaneously with the pre recorded self or computer generated self, projected onto a screen. The trio have built a language of stock images, rendered files and found motion capture simulations that inform the actions, the movements, the behaviour for each character identity and have set them to repeat.
NB! Not at Non-space, but in Aarhus Ø.

Artist Libby Heaney collaborates with ScienceAtHome to explore parallel universes at the intersection of art, science, technology and ethics.
Quantum Breathing is drawn from the reflections and entanglements between the artist’s previous experience working as a quantum physicist; psychological virtual reality experiments; speculating over future technologies; the sculpting of ‘impossible’ quantum forms; conversations with scientists and considerations about the real and virtual, identity and meaning.
Grounded in research and constructed through fragments of narrative from of Murakami’s ‘Hard-boiled wonderland and the end of the world’’, Quantum Breathing, uses the properties of the virtual reality experience itself both outside/IRL and inside VR to question our relationships and transactions with seductive new technologies.
Quantum Breathing is an interactive, virtual reality experience. A 'living' quantum world deconstructs classical reality as users become a quantum particle. The virtual reality experience explores the storytelling possibilities of quantum mechanics, using quantum calculations as a medium to create new narratives.
Alongside the main exhibition, we invite everyone to explore quantum physics in an experimental Quantum Game Cafe over a cup of coffee.
The exhibition open 5th–12th August
Every day 14h00–18h00

What is friendship? A vital alliance, a sharing of acts and thoughts, an exercise in freedom. Through sculpture and performance, two British artists bring together an emotional and sincere exploration of friendship. Inspired by the perplexing and complex symbiotic relationships of animals and the natural world - part love, part necessity. A glimmer of hope, a sequin in a dust rag. Justine Melford-Colegate is a british artist living and working in Connecticut, USA. Anna Reading is a graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art London with an MFA in Fine Art, living and working in London.
🔷 Sudden Dialogues 🔷 is an experimental investigation of social situations, interaction and its byproducts, exploring different ways for communication and sharing of ideas. It imagines new methods for engaging in free conversation with others and helps define possible fields for action that could later be applied within various design processes.
Designers in residence, Maja Kolar and Maša Poljanec from Oazacollective, whose practice focuses on research-oriented work and critical design, will showcase their first draft of outcomes collected during a 2-week stay in Non—space dealing with conception of spaces for achieving dialogue and exchange of perspectives.
Main focus in their Aarhus research was written or spoken conversational transfer between two or more people: What forms do dialogues take?🔹Where can they take place?🔹What content drives them?🔹How to start or stir them?🔹How to make them into channels of meaningful interaction?🔹Which communication methods to hack in order to expand on existing polarizing noise?🔹How to conquer everyday loneliness?
We invite you to join one of the sessions on Monday, 3rd July between 3PM and 7PM!
Sȯ-nə (Beth Kettel & Sean Millington)
Opening Friday 16/6 2017 15h00-20h00
Exhibition open 17/6 & 18/6 12h00-15h00
Sȯ-nə is a new collaborative project between UK based artists Beth Kettel and Sean Millington. The duo share a common interest in considering and incorporating all aspects of exhibition making as artwork through working across disciplines, and through collaboration. Kettel most recently completed a residency at Eastside Projects, Birmingham UK that culminated in a performative solo presentation that incorporated a collaboration with musicians Linda Kettel and Tom Rose. Millington has for the last five years worked as one part of the curatorial artistic duo Millington | Marriott, working with a variety of artists collaboratively to produce new work and curate exhibitions and projects. The two spent time together in Finland in 2016 forming the ideas of Sȯ-nə project.
Sȯ-nə is a project that develops new works and collaborations through our research into sauna and bathing cultures across the world. The project encompasses art, design and socio-political issues that are often overlooked in the current political rhetoric. Contrary to the contemporary spa – almost invariably a place of privilege and luxury – the sauna has more inclusive roots: a place for social, political, and cultural exchange. Sȯ-nə is in response to the changing social conditions and shifting boundaries between public and private life; between personal and communal space. The sauna offers a pause in the overwhelming pace of modern western society reconnecting body to mind and in turn, to community. We aim to develop a better understanding of the fundamental principles of sauna culture from around the world.
Through opening up our ideas and our research exploring different cultures, typologies and traditions of saunas, along with their social, political and cultural impact, we’re interested in finding out how this communal site operates in different cultures. And what bringing those different ideas together can offer: as a public facility, as a collaborative opportunity, as contemporary art and as a hybrid of these things.
operatic mass actions intervene in the urban space of Aarhus we aim to emancipate the genre of opera from the grand institutions and their stages. In this urban space the art form will enter into a fluid and changeable context which calls for a more democratic concept of the opera work.
Operatic mass actions will be performed in places where people go about their everyday business and people will be involved actively. In this way the audience will become co-creators of the work and the relation between work and contemporary human beings will generate meaning and significance.
Whether it is in the café environment by the creek of Aarhus, in the foyer of the theatre, in the commercial pedestrian streets, in private living rooms, or in the line of the citizen service centre at the town hall, there will be created a meta-staging of our present life conditions seen through complex artistic filters, and this will take place on the terms of the urban space without the distancing factors of the light effects and the theatre magic. Now it includes self-build instruments, collectives, new extended bel canto singing techniques, noise, visuals, and high-tech interactive elements and a performing ensemble.
Aarhus Unge Tonekunstnere (AUT) create intimate and relaxed concerts and cross-genre cultural events, that also foster open dialogue, exchange, and networking. We want to emphasise the audience’s role in the adventure, and our regular events provide our members and the public with opportunities to hear new music in such diverse places as the comfort of a private living room, under a railway bridge on the outskirts of the city, or at one of the more traditional cultural venues in Aarhus.
AUT is a nonprofit organization for sound arts founded in 1966.
AUT works actively to support local ensembles and initiatives, as well as creating new opportunities for young and contemporary sound arts in Aarhus and Denmark. AUT is led by a diverse group of practicing artists, mirroring the lively milieu surrounding the sound arts in Aarhus.

Paul Clipson with Shinya Sugimoto & Jeremy Young presents Total Fiction – A 16mm film projection event with live improvised score
Taking it’s name from Shinya Sugimoto & Jeremy Young’s forthcoming LP featuring cellist Julia Kent, Total Fiction is live score performance to a 16mm film reel projection by Paul Clipson that will change night by night in reaction to the properties of each space. Like all of Clipson’s film collage works, this will be frenetic, it will span movements both in stark black and white and bright analog color, and the score will be disbursed in a series of chapters. Improvisation, for Sugimoto and Young, is like fiction, and they’ll work to bring out auditory characters, narratives, themes and transitional arcs from the celluloid, while at times challenging the pictures to provide new meaning in new sonic contexts from space to space. Shinya Sugimoto performs on piano and Max MSP triggered processing, while Young will be utilizing his analog electronics such as reel-to-reel tape loops, oscillators, AM radio and contact mic’d objects and surfaces to build textural and tonal color palettes throughout the evening.
This tour takes the trio, a brand new collaboration, through the UK, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Denmark in two weeks. Sugimoto and Young’s record Total Fiction will be released on the Copenhagen-based label The Phinery http://phinery.net/

"When the peaks of our sky come together
My house will have a roof."
Where the walls are weak is a visual study of places. How they affect our senses, the emotional patterns they create and how they interact with us.

REITIR, er en international workshop baseret i Siglufjörður, nord-Island, som faciliterer stedspecifikke kulturelle projekter. REITIR udforsker skjulte facetter i byer og undersøger menneskers interaktion med det offentlige rum. REITIR afholder en årlig sommerworkshop i Siglufjörður for kreative mennesker fra hele verden. Arnar Ómarsson er medstifter af REITIR og vil tale om workshoppens metoder, filosofier, baggrund og fremtid samt komme med tips til facilitering af byrumsprojekter og fortælle om hvordan det er at arbejde med kultur i små samfund.
"Look around you. As the world expands, it dreams of its original state of togetherness. The world is made up by relationships that suggest a network. All entities, every object is described in the same terms; as an active element. As an object, at any given moment, you are a product of the space that surrounds you. Everything longs for a relation, to be in a context. Plants, for example thrive in a dialogue between the sun and the soil, and a rock that is sent flying through the air eventually finds the ground again. Stay still and let these surroundings find you. Let them penetrate your senses and flow uncontrollably and forcefully through your mind. Look at yourself as an object of this space and give in to the friction between being and non-being. Give rise to not knowing and surrender to the pleasure of the eternal friction."
