With the science fiction poem «Ferdsskriveren» Anders Elsrud Hultgreen brings the reader on a doomed expedition through a timeless alien landscape. Obsessed with completing the journey, we are constantly haunted by the impending fatal outcomes. Set against the seductive beauty of the perpetual external conditions – geology, botany and meteorology – we witness a life reduced to desperation, exhaustion, hopelessness and madness. With a cinematic storytelling language where hypnotic and spectacular landscape photos have equal importance to the word «Ferdsskriveren», an underlying theme rises – a lyrical meditation on environment and landscape when political borders and civilization are erased, and how human beings as a species react when we suddenly find our position as a wrecked life form in an unknown territory. The result is nothing less than an awe-inspiring downward spiral toward existential crisis and cosmic abstraction. The artists book «FERDSSKRIVEREN» is the first installment of the artists book trilogy «THE KRATON TRILOGY»
