Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) is best know for his work on the philosophy of language. He devoted most of his writing to an investigation of what we can and cannot do sensibly with words, particularly regarding our claims to knowledge. Wittgenstein had a long-standing appointment teaching at Cambridge, England. But he was always leaving the field, and spent considerable time living and writing elsewhere, including Norway. Curious about his retreat north, in 2005 I spent three weeks at the Wittgenstein Archive, University of Bergen, Norway, and traveled to the site of a hut Wittgenstein commissioned in the small fjord-side village of Skjolden. The corresponding artworks include two grided photographs that document the remains of the hut and the trail signs leading to it; a set of three comparative map drawings of the hut’s location, drawn by Wittgenstein, the owner of the trailside campground where I stayed, and me; and an illustrated, folded sheet map. In exhibition, a stack of maps is contextualized with the photographs and map drawings. Exhibition view, “McKnight Visual Artists 2006-2007,” MCAD Gallery, Minneapolis, 2007.
