The comet hurtles across the sky. The cream in the fridge curdles. The cat, the black one, crosses the road and the expensive gourmet fair-trade coffee grounds sink to the bottom and form a smiling skull. The Co-Star App asks if you shouldn’t just stay home today?
Under the working title Jærtegn, we delve into folklore, symbols and omens, exploring the enduring stories that aim to help us foresee changes in the world.
