Lars Weck, journalist and music writer/critic at Dagens Nyheter, Stockholm Sweden at this point in time .
Lars Weck I did meet in Paris when he was a correspondent for the Swedish largest newspaper Dagens Nyheter, 1966 in December, and he was spending most of his time at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France.
and Bengt Modin one of the technicial assistents at the Swedish Televison Broadcasting Corporation in the 60's.(front right)
I was the one who suggested Janne Karlsson to be an actor and he later on became an actor.
I will explain this on another webpage later. "Scizo Femetti!"!! (DN)
Sven Inge deMoner/ Sven Hoglund, a teenage friend of mine from the northern town of Sundsvall in Sweden came to Stockolm 1967/68 and was invited to participate in the expanding project of MONUMENT. He was asked to make oil/acrylic paintings of the electronic paintings as Lars and myself could not find funds or sponsorship to make silkscreen paintings, machine paintings of a bigger size on canvas. Sven Inge accepted the invitation and created a large number of paintings based on the electronic paintings, created by myself and Lars. The picture above is taken in the Stockholm subway station and shows a large photograpic exhibition by Ture and Lars, sponsored by the newspaper Dagens Nyheter 1968. In the front: Sven Inge Hoglund/demoner and in the background Lars Weck. This was the actual time when Sven Inge get into our project. The two pictures in the middle of the more than 20 meter long artwork show Paul McCartney and Ringo Star from the video art work MONUMENT.

The book MONUMENT was already edited and ready to print when Sven Inge moved in to the project. Lars and myself agree to put Sven Inges name on the book and asked him to write a text to be used as a forword as it could help him to sell his paintings later on. The copyright to the book belongs to Ture and Lars, entirely!

Windmills of Your Mind: Most PhD, Doctor Hats could still be blown as "Time", "Monument" and "Space in the Brain" never was a film, TV-program, video art or photograph's ever, in it's origin. It was never ever a film "about" or "on" Don Cherry, Hansson&Karlsson or anyone else for that matter. It was all electronic calligraphy and paintings. It was and can still today be transfused to any media or material. It was though undisputably, the very first electronic morphing and animation in a real sense of the Modern Art History the 20th Century.
Something it takes four generations of "artlovers" and "art-historians" to understand. - Ture Sjolander
