Journey to Italy (Andersen, 2016, 14:00)

The Norwegian architectural theorist Christian Norberg-Schulz (1926 – 2000) once claimed that one of his most important theories came to him  when looking out the window of a train, returning to Norway after having spent a year in Italy. Following in the footsteps of Norberg-Schulz between Norway and Italy, tracing the window in his life and theory of genius loci, the film Journey to Italy (Andersen, 2017, 15:00) is based upon a five-day journey from Norway to Italy. This project asks questions of mobility and spatial orientation, where place becomes recognisable by landmarks, climate, lettering, language and the traveler’s experience.
