A simple deck of cards started as a game with some paintings and drawings on it. Twenty two characters start to tell their story speaking . So the 22 Arcans intersects themselves ad reveals as they develop in the Magics Tarots we have now.

The Arcans of the Tarots were influenced from 1400 till now from different cultures , people , languages , religions and misteries. The Arcans start telling their story in a journey around Europe, who touched them and who decide to develop them. How people could read them in different ways and how symbols on it are observed. The story is seen not from the poin of view of the oracles but from the normal people that exchange meanings with the tarots. The lifes of the characters became real , developing themselves around the different nations and touched by different people. The fool starts as the first card and exhibits the entire deck of cards inserting his madness in his choiches and in his tales, telling us who influenced his life and where he wants to go. The use and costumes around the 22 cards are part of the story , the people who in different laguages influenced the icons and created new profiles . The point of view is not one but the multiples points of view of the journey of the tarots is the point of view of Europe , a country composed by a multiple voices and a story generated by many stories.

All roads lead to the Oslo Borough Market

For 600 years the Oslo Borough Market was a trade center that brought Norwegians to Bysantz as varangians, to Europe as vikings, becoming a main center for nation building - until 1624 when it burnt, the city was moved closer to the Akershus castle and the market place became a traffic hub. The City Council has decided to restore the old market place, and by 2024 - with private and public means - it could become a lively public place.

Drainspotting - A European Story, Made in Sheffield.

The development of the modern European city is often a story of political organisation and the flourishing of social and cultural institutions. This story is different, it looks under the pavements and roads of one such European city, Sheffield, to tell how industrialisation, urbanisation and new forms of local government emerged over the last two centuries. While the architecture of the city is often impressive, the hidden infrastructure of sewerage, and services such as power, fuel, and communication is what really makes a city function. Focussing on the unassuming covers such as manholes, drains and service portals, we tell a story of how a city developed, how its citizens were protected from disease and how a hidden network of pipes, culverts and wires connects us to each other. 'Drainspotting' is a pastime now taken seriously by academics but also one equally open to every citizen. This story shows us how anyone can understand the history of their street simply by looking down and thinking about what’s under their feet!
