Meaningfull, sublime tranquility can be found at sea or on a mountain, in their cacophonous silence. As I find maritime equipment more beautiful than mountaneering boots, I have chosen to work with this.
The subtlety of the work theme ("ro" in Danish both means tranquility and "row" as in oarsmanship) permits a broad interpretation.
Extract from Jørgen Frantz Jacobsen's novel "Barbara":
"Row towards the bore! cried Barbara. "But the current...," objected Niels in the punt. "Oh, you and your current!" cried out Barbara impatiently. Barbara's face suddenly took on an empty expression. The men stole a glance over their shoulders, which resulted in the same emptiness. There was quite simply nothing to be seen. Neither sea nor sky. Just a white fog. Emptiness and the cry of seagulls. The men rowed for a little longer, as if possessed. But then suddenly they stopped and rested on their oars. Hopeless.
It became very quiet in the boat."
