i’m jealous of rune guneriussen

That’s it… as soon as I finish writing this, I’m taking all of my books and lamps out into the backyard where they clearly belong! Sigh. These beautiful {and let’s face it, quite magical} installations are assembled and then photographed by Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen. Since 2005, he’s been creating these engaging narratives using man-made objects {like tables, chairs, telephones, globes, and of course, lamps & books} placed into the natural landscape of Norway. Ok, I better go open the back door… my lamps need a bit of fresh air.

    he obviously doesn’t live on the west coast of norway, like me. where i live, it rains so much that you can’t bring anything outside unless it’s equipped with an umbrella and wellingtons. nice find though – i hadn’t heard of him =)

    ha! well, maybe he could do a few pieces in your neck of the woods… instead of lamps and books, umbrellas and wellingtons? what do you think? ; )

    I’ve been following his work, and couldn’t agree with you more. The lamps? Perfection.

    Wow I love these. I am jealous too. I want to live in a forest that has rivers of books and trees that grow pretty lamps.
