En sti er en tanke utstrekt i tid og rom (A path is a thought stretched out in time and space) is a group exhibition at the Arboretum where six artists in different ways create works of art in different ways relating to the seasons. Through new technology such as VR, as well as through inherited and revitalized craft traditions, new looks at culinary traditions and indigenous seasonal architecture and technology. Human societies and lives have always been framed by the seasons, which both provide predictability, challenges and opportunities. The exhibition is inspired by the CALENDARS research group at UiB, which has looked at how climate change changes the rhythm and intensity of the seasons.
