Sunday stroll

Yesterday brought us the 10th summer day of the season and we took a little stroll around campus at University of Stavanger. It was such a beautiful day and so peaceful being Sunday and all. The campus is lovely with lots of green and even some cool artwork.
This artist knows how to rust stuff; maybe I should contact him before I plan my next erosion bundles. I love the simple gigantic female shapes!
My gym is also part of campus, so this is where I do my 3-times-a-week-workout/voluntary-torture-classes.
This ivy covered (not Ivy League though) school was the reason why I moved here 28 years ago. I was supposed to stay for 2 years, but never really wanted to leave. Inside this building is the cafeteria where I spent many many (oh so many) happy hours during my studies.
Oh so many happy memories…

  1. You could always ask him if you could just crap your fabric and paper around his sculptures for about 6 months! ;) Call it a "collaborative project", I bet he goes for it! hehe

  7. Ahhh...campus life. What a fun time (except for the studying). I'm pretty sure the sculptor used some illegal-for-erosion-bundles stuff to get that nice rusted finish to his statues.
