Norwegians just do it better? The Troll Wall is the tallest vertical rock face in Europe, about 3,600 ft from its base to the summit of its highest point. And now, thanks to the wonderful work of Reiulf Ramstad Architects, there is a fantastic visitor's center for which to visit before you base jump, or whatever you do at steep cliffs.

Photographer Sarah Anne Johnson had an artist’s residency on board a sailboat near the Arctic Circle in Norwegian territory, and while she was there, she documented the beautiful landscape and serene environment.

Turn Me On, Dammit! is an independent movie made by the Norwegian documentary filmmaker Jannicke Systad Jacobsen. This will be Jacobsen's debut fiction film and it looks to be a poetic and hilarious reflection upon female pubescent coming of age and understanding of sexuality, a story normally told from the male perspective.

We stumbled on these photos of a few of the walls Horfe has been working on in Vardø, Norway. From what we see here, it looks like Horfe went the extra mile, with multiple highly detailed murals. Not the best or most detailed photos, however it give you an idea of the amount of work he has been creating there. Better photos real sooooon.

This morning we are getting a kick out of the crochet art of Norway's Inger Carin, featuring an array of everyday objects crocheted. Guns, boxing gloves, television sets, cassette tapes, beer bottles, and credit cards all get a little handmade treatment.

Ainsley Belle Retzius is a sweet, youthful illustrator out of Norway who has based her signature style around playful bits of animal bones, skulls and the kind of decoration you would find at your best friend's birthday party (when you were 13). Enjoy.

If you have never seen one of Tauba Auerbach's texture paintings in person, we suggest finding a local institution that houses Auerbach's work (SFMoMA for example) to check them out. Currently, Auerbach has texture paintings and works that "interweaves discordant positions such as disorder and order, readability and abstraction, permeability and solidity" on display in Bergen, Norway.
