Prosjekt 1969

Welcome to my research blog!

Here I will publish things I discover during my research into the physical and mental infrastructure of the Norwegian oil wealth.

The past weeks I have been diving into history, geography, engineering, economy and geology to try and get a grip on what is going on with the oil and gas industry in Norway. Also, I am trying to find tools and concept to articulate the mental infrastructure that maintains this industry.

I'm inspired by Susan Griffins A Chorus of Stones and the New Materialism movement and I'm trying to figure out how to think about this hyperobject that is oil.

I will publish my findings here. I hope you will like it. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have anything to add!
