Originally I was a plant, as you. Then we grew. So different from each other. Still together. We don't understand. Anything. No need for that. The understanding. Never in the way of being together. Next to each other.

What do you see when you see me?


I Originally a plant vever Maritea Dæhlin sammen ulike språk. Dette er virkeligheten for mange av oss som stadig skifter mellom språk, hvor vi må la det stå et åpent rom for fortolkning, manglende ord, måter å forstå det som sies eller høres. Veven blir et visuelt og sonisk landskap som skifter mellom det synlige og usynlige, det som kan bli forstått og misforstått.


When I see you, I see a group of people, like a herd, or like a football team, or like a continent, I see how you look away from me, all of you, and I hear our laughter, I feel how my stomach hurts, it cramps, hurting, because of our laughter, then I feel love, love for your people, and I look into your eyes, even you are looking away, and I say «I love you»

But can you love me?

I will not answer.

As a plant.
