« Chaos is a beautiful thing. The aesthetic of chaos can be seen in mathematics, in statistics, in philosophy, in politics, in anarchy, in geology, and in most aspects of our lives. Moving together with chaos, not eliminating it, can create spontaneity and surprise. Predicting chaos and celebrating it can lead us on a journey on new roads. » Izabella Petrut
« Chaos is a big part of our lives, yet we do everything to pretend it does not exist. I look at chaos as both poison and fertilizer, as the complete break down of things but also as the beginning of something new and fruitful. By embracing chaos and arriving at zero, new possibilities might arise. » Malene Kastalje
« The human spectrum of emotion is a bewildering thing to experience. This mess of feelings we hold inside our bodies, is it really necessary to have? If so, what else can we do, than to store them in our skin, our flesh, our memories. They make us, they kill us, and they give us joy. It is hard to show them to others. We keep them securely inside us, not wanting to feel the uncomfortableness of disappointment. But we want to share. Show hints of our own fragility, with a distorted and transparent exterior. You can look inside, if you have the same mess of course. » Olaf Tonnesland Hodne
