"Maybe its not only okay to be a bit odd, could it possibly be an advantage to be a bit nuts?"

Simen Aanerud's great passion in life is to make things, and he's fortunate enough to be able to do this every day. In "Of Nuts and Bolts" from PKN Oslo Vol. 28, he also speaks very openly about his issues with social anxiety, compulsions, and how his uneasiness with the world feeds into his creations. Simen says that this discomfort is one of the main driving forces of his work, and he tells us how it cultivates his imagination.
