The Blue Book - Ode to Wisdom, is the second book of artist and thinker Helene Lundbye Petersen's Colour Spectrum of 11 Spaces. The Colour Spectrum is an artwork comprised of eleven manuscripts that seek to explore the complexities of contemporary life and represent spaces of courage, perspective, inspiration and hope. Five of the books within the Colour Spectrum form the series A Mythology on our Current Condition of Life. Through their dramatic narratives and use of visual language to unfold existential questions, myths have a unique ability to express complex aspects of life. Working from the premise that we are existentially faced with a new human condition, these books suggest a way to criticise, deconstruct and eventually comprehend contemporary life via five fundamental concepts: Wisdom (Blue), Pleasure (Orange), War (Red), Love (Green) and Balance (Yellow). These five concepts are embodied by five Goddesses, each of whom explores Her roles and responsibilities - to question the way She sees the world, to relate to what has changed in the human condition, to grasp the overwhelming complexity of our current conflicts and to understand the technological revolution that is dissolving the borders that once defined human existence.The Blue Book - the first of the Mythology series - follows The Goddess of Wisdom, who was created by the first thought and continues to rule over the world of our thoughts. The day that we stop thinking, She will disappear. Realising that something is fundamentally changing, Wisdom withdraws back to the place of the first thought, to Her own inception. She asks what Wisdom is, and therefore what She is, in an attempt to understand this fundamental change.
