While driving through Norway on our MobiSpray summer 2008 tour, we passed by the city of Alta and its Alta Museum which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has some of the oldest rock carvings of the world on display in the real nature. Of course I didn’t dare to spray on the rock carvings - which in theory would have been possible to do - but I got at least inspired by them, simply to use rocks to mobispray on. Like the humans did few thousand years ago to draw with physical tools of their times, I do it with my digital tools of our time.
Through this my mind got triggered, that it might be interesting to study why people were drawing in caves and on stones and what kind of perception and meaning it created, but also what social impact it had. This could be useful knowledge to better understand MobiSpray in terms of what kind of perception it can invoke and how I could perhaps create new meanings through my own drawings.
After leaving the Alta museum we ended up driving by the Alta airport where I spotted a white Cesna plane just beside the fence, an ideal object to make it look like as I want it to be.
