"The installation captures a national crisis from the ordinary people´s point of view. It does not contain statistics or glossy and dynamic story-telling of the news, but gives space for people whose everyday life has suddenly erupted. The power of the artwork lies in it´s direct and modest approach, voicing out a political statement which has many dimensions and tones.", Jury statement 24.

30 DAYS focuses as video diaries on the subjective perception of time and space, velocity and synchronicity. Over the time frame of thirty days the three artists Annesofie Norn, Veronika Bökelmann and Ole Kristensen documented the rhythm of the places they visited as regular travels they undertook for their jobs. With a same set of rules three distinctive video journeys lead through European metropoles, Greenland and the mediterranean sea. Twelve minutes of filmation per day explore physical distances and means to overcome them.
