Most of my artistic work is situational. I work mostly with light, - light touching, form and space. This has resulted in a number of «light installations» interior and exterior. I work mainly with site based ideas; content and character. Materials are chosen according to the idea and in relation to the site.My choice of materials is unlimited;anything from traditional materials to building- or natural materials. The light can be natural or a variety of artificial light. The situations can be either small or large but always with one or another form of energy.My main focus is on relativity of space/form/light with a versatility. Light and space relativity is common to all my works. I am fascinated by light, yet not necessarily limited to the colour white whenever the situation requires something else.

An on-going master vision on new, alternative ways of living in a cultural landscape. A living lab preparing for an alternative future.
Bo;lab is a master vision for Vibrandsøy. The masterplan includes activating the island and create a community and society, similar to how it was there a hundred years ago. Bo;lab will constantly discuss new and alternative ways of (green) living. My project will result in a society that offers an alternative way of living than in the city.
The idea of this island becoming a «showcase» and inspiration for greener living is central, especially given the placement along and in proximity to the city.
This will be a society where people can live more simple – in micro houses – as long as they contribute to the community by working there. In other words, the community will be circular in two aspects; it is run by itself – partly self-sufficient with food (vegetables from the cropland) and electricity, and also the people living there circulates, as people live at Vibrandsøy as long as they have work on the island.

The decided shape of the module. This module will be placed in different places to activate areas. It will be repeated as a sauna, installations inside the greenhouse, as micro houses and as an adapter in the city center.
