The earthbound biological entity known by the appellation Rasmus Andreas Hungnes (delivered by the stork in 1984, given name meaning "lovable man") lives and works in space-time. Hungnes was licked, knocked, and whipped into shape at the Bergen Art School (KiB), Bergen National Academy of the Arts (KHiB (now KMD)), Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee, The Icelandic Elf School (Álfaskólinn), and at the prestigious school of life. The hominid in question currently operates professionally as an artist, drummer, writer, and curator.
