This was the year graduated from The Iceland University of the Arts. I received my second Erasmus grand and this time I applied for internship at Egill Sæbjörnsson Studio in Berlin. There I worked for six months for Egill on various projects as well as on my own art.

Funnymantranscript

I am a looser in a lost world

what does that make me?

Hey, Mr. Funny man

play the Gong for me

I am weary and fed up with your bigotry

Hey Mr. Funny man

I have set me self free

the world is not YOUR world I want to live in

I am a looser in a lost world

what does that make me?

Close your eyes Mr. Funny man

you can’t see with them open

and your mind is already made up

of plastics

Hey Mr. Funny man

your vomit is pouring

and your power is waning

the innate programming has been replaced

Emotional memory is fading

you can’t be expected to process

what you don’t access

Hey Mr. Funny man

play along with me

yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, yes, no,

yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, yes, no,

this cross you bear is heavy

your hate speech has shaped me

and now It is my turn to shape me

Hey, Mr. Funny man

play a song for me

in silence and in absence

of your totality
