We are The Ingredient - Our body scale is a reflection of our environmental perception as man is aware of the surrounding behind his/her head as in front, Koffka once mentioned ‘What is it that lies between the ‘in front’ and the ‘behind’? - ‘Just that phenomenal object we call the Ego’.


Hasvik is the public space that is on the surface exactly like the one that is hidden inside, right under our feet. The place whose architecture is reflected in the archives sounds in the memories passing from one resident to another, from local to the outlander, from body to body, from soil to soil. The Memory place whose image is preserved by voids in the landscape, reserving the right to be wrapped in a multitude of images of memory and imagination. The public place is built through memories, their absence, through awareness of one's own body as an observer of it - all this builds a kind of visual architecture of the memory of a hidden place.


So What is it that lies between the ‘up’ and ‘down’ then? Perhaps such a phenomenal object we call The Memory.

The space of the soil, allows Us to become an observer of places that hide in the surfaces through touch and determination of our own position, up or down. 


The optics of archeology suggests shifting the paradigm of one's own body in relation to the local landscape. If we consider a hidden public space from the perspective of a cave, where the body is in some way an observer, a certain architecture of the body arises, which no longer uses the cave as a shelter, but becomes one of the compositions of its layers, something that acquires the material of time, where the awareness of the environment is the awareness of the social memory that is collected by all those hidden recesses of the Sørøya landscape, where a man as a resident becomes a common ingredient for the memory of the line of the region that is under the soil, where the smooth transition takes place, the landscape is becoming the cavescape, the cavescape is becoming the humanscape, the humanscape is becoming  the landscape.
