1:30 am
discover the. six minute. documentary you tube. welcome to highlight show i am louise house and i will be here with you for the next half an hour taking you through the best of all stories from the previous week is a taste of what's in store. a life choices that is the key to the danes happiness . rock n roll and joy even belong to and his devil some.
1:31 am
sweet to bend you a trip to austria as a client to patisserie. we kick start the show with a great philosophy on life if you stray more than one language you will not know that sometimes there isn't a direct translation for what you're trying to say in some languages certain words just don't exist and one example is the danish word who got you just conch translate it but it basically means enjoying life simple pleasures be that spending time with friends and family going for a wall core simply looking up at the sky ole signify. and since the danes are usually ranked highly amongst the happiest people in the wells we thought we'd get a lesson in how to live a more hooghly life. surveys indicate that danes are among the happiest people on earth. in fact the un's world happiness report regularly
1:32 am
puts denmark at the top of the list. what is it about the danes that makes them such happy people. might be king has written a book about all this and he believes he has the answer. he has to do with togetherness it has to do with the art of creating a good atmosphere it's about equality it's about saving simple pleasures i think we also see something inherently danish i think we see it as part of our national identity the same way the americans see freedom we think of something as part of our d.n.a. . the word who get means being comfortable and contented often while enjoying the simpler pleasures of life. here are a few examples. it's having of kabul for warm chocolate all warm
1:33 am
and some peace with that some and the talk. a little bit deeper than the feeling of the couch and what we take you can't pull yourself heard is also maybe watching a film or reading a book and brutal isn't. mike beaking is the c.e.o. of the happiness research institute in copenhagen he says that the danes unique attitude towards life plays a major role in their sense of wellbeing. we've been curious about why denmark does well in the happiness ranks and we've looked at the political system and that's a big part of the explanation you know high level of trust your social security and as well health care but that also explains why the other nordic countries do well so we wanted to understand why does denmark do better then than sweden for in iceland and. no we are spending quality time with family and friends or
1:34 am
enjoying homemade cinnamon buns that's ok. but danes really love christmas time traditional apple tarts are on sale at christmas markets throughout copenhagen. so it's brooke or danish mulled wine. literally amusement park is decked out with a sea of lights my creaking says winter is the peak season for a good. while is practiced throughout the year i think for the winter period it becomes almost a survival strategy it's a way of getting the best out of the time of year which is doc and cold and wet and we're forced into august. the best place to experience is in danish homes the danes have more living space per person than any other european country and they make their surroundings as comfortable as possible. light is important too.
1:35 am
there's a reason why we use twice as much candle wax as number two in europe which is also true because we enjoy lighting that is at the low end of the temperature scale so we enjoy warm mortify soft diffused lights to create a nice atmosphere in a room. but danes also like to have nice things around the house northern europe is known for its design concepts like lamps by pulling an accent and chairs by on a are cops and core clint but do these things actually make people happy the notion or the concept of something that for danes is just a word or describes a situation and or a state of mind more than a design i don't think you can say that it's a sign it's a sign there is. doing something to create but i think it's something that's more ingrained or me. internalized in our culture
1:36 am
a simple walk outside can also be good it doesn't cost anything and makes you feel good. he shouldn't be about consumerism you could also use. as the get out of jail card if something is too expensive if you walk into a restaurant it's too expensive you can say sure can you find a place that's more than your friends or your let's find a place that's more so should be inexpensive because it's about equality and it's about simple precious. danes call that special cozy christmas feeling. and the focus is not on expensive presents it's on being together with family and friends that's the true spirit of christmas and not just in denmark. during what a lot is shorter bring you as well as some the course that might mean a stroll in the park but father says it means a huge adrenaline rush on
1:37 am
a man who can't get enough of those bars is a frenchman known as roll of and he designed a unique role a suit that is fitted with thirty two rollers all over the body he can basically roll in any position he likes and since he has mastered the art of rolling he created a suit for goal lighting or skating on the ice. roller man. is trying on some blades. he shoots down the icy track at seventy kilometers per hour like a human bobsled his head just ten centimeters from the ox. he calls this brand new version of buddy roll in the extreme sport invented buggy ice. the perfect feeling is feeling. when you make mistakes you hear that that the noise
1:38 am
is changing when and when every blade is is on the right position it just like. when something's wrong as. i sunfire and say good on and feel some fifty kilometers east of the capital and we got. adrenaline junkies come here to race on skates. or hurtle down the lose track breakneck speeds . and he is the craziest of them all brawn told from friends his full body suit is studded with fourteen ice skate blades a prototype that's only been tried once before. the first suspicion i got which i loved is in the account you watch and then you see the people wrong direction the trees. going over you in the sky is wrong direction so so if the world is changing around you because of the gravity direction. this is.
1:39 am
in the original version of his suit as the roller mat. he reached speeds up to one hundred twenty kilometers an hour. the thirty two rollers let him slip across smooth surfaces in every conceivable position. it may look pretty dangerous but it's meticulously planned out. sometimes i go even buy food to know each corner it's truck it's crosswords. so i know everything in my head i can visualize in three d. the whole district looks like so it's a question of preparation you don't go just like this. drawing you brando in better days thirty two wheel rollers sued over twenty years ago while studying industrial design. now he's selling his invention so much of it has to be done by hand it to
1:40 am
suit costs around six thousand seven hundred euro's. he also warns money with t.v. appearances and advertising even if he makes a living from his invention rondo's says it's not primarily about money. when you wear the suit the first time. you all connection to the world is changing you are not. you're not a normal human everything you touch you touch wood weaves it looks more robotic deeply your identity the image you sent to the other people is different. over the years brando is refined to suit more and more modifying it for a variety of surfaces this is the ski version and he's got his sights set on new goals as well. but i think we can go like that is easily fifty six fifty can return
1:41 am
more we've good ironies to work on ironies i would like to work with some models insight like electric motor was my dream is to be faster than the car and street i want that i can produce. the suits cheaper that's for christmas junk choose to buy it. there's no doubt that the suit is a real i get your. and it may well be the most impressive and dangerous way to speak down. to impressive it certainly is and you won't catch me trying it out in a hurry let's turn now to focus on two german artists who have a more tranquil passion and that is lighting up forests with their projections and imagery they use an innovative combination of techniques bringing life to the
1:42 am
darkest of nights the images they produce of both magical and mesmerizing the also prefer to not digitally manipulate anything in post-production so the case of them is in the preparation and that can take hours in the cold winter nights. glowing shapes in untouched nature surrealistic images from the short film lucid by the german artist's collective. and none of this is done with computer animation even images that seem inexplicable are real objects and were actually installed in the surroundings. tarik my wife and pretty fun sure put
1:43 am
a lot of physical work and creativity into their art. among other things they use luminescent wires and objects to create their illusions. room we do this and the thing that blows it all depends on how you stage it if they think of it all but the techniques and materials i use range from household items for example the sphere shape as a layer. to projections for example we have one shot with a triangle we cut it out of cardboard and then just object to the colored light onto it. the some point you have would have windows and. in twenty fourteen the artist duo shot the short film bio luminescent forest here to all the light affects are projected directly into the setting rather than manipulating the images on a computer. direct my wad and feature i'm sure employed
1:44 am
and even now protect knology for this called projection mapping parts of the forest are illuminated effects on irregular surfaces and textures are taken into account this requires not only a precise plan but also patient. especially when the illuminated objects are not only three dimensional but also animate. usually we only project light onto inanimate objects but we also wanted to use animals ones that don't move much or that hold still for a while but with a frog we have to film for five hours because it kept jumping away because. for other projects the light artists bring a bit of nature into the city. for example their new project in paris in twenty fifteen. astonished the audience with the projection of a gigantic spider. first they had to build
1:45 am
a cardboard model of the building and film the spider inside it then we projected the video onto the inside walls of the building for the illusion to be perfect the dimensions and perspectives have to correspond precisely. when it is mr noir for us it's important that you are trying out new techniques for example in our next project we might work with fire or with water or whatever. with a wide range of things we don't want to limit ourselves i think that's what enables us to always have new themes and to be able to convey a feeling. but i hunt will continue to create illusions in the future without image editing using physical exertion and ingenious ideas. while you might have an artist that we have a winter theme running through the show today on their supporters no exception we
1:46 am
