Knowledge from outside, artist book, Eva Artinger, Lena Kaapke (2015)

I studied in Norway for a year and collected relics from living nature on my hikes.

The objects were packed and transported in sandwich bags inscribed with the location of the find, the date and name of the natural object.

Then, I ordered the finds into coloured circles and determined the respective average colour. The order of colours is the representation of the wonderful feeling while hiking. 

The Artist's Notebook is an archive consisting of these booklets and three accompanying posters each dealing with a coloured circle with its finds and their colours – ochre, brown and green.
