Using a lot of time on technological devices and social media can be an obstacle to experiencing the physical surrounding. Time can easily be spent in the virtual reality creating content and performing emotions instead of actually feeling what’s present here and now. This can suppress one’s real-life experiences. Joining natural and technological materials in playful and tactile ways celebrates the need to experience emotions.



necklace, paper, 2017

We are served a lot of news every day through various channels. Bad news, ridiculous news, frightening news, chocking news, fake news, unnecessary news and perhaps some good news. How does the information affect you? What is valuable to know? The amount of information we get can create a chaotic feeling and be compared to noise. In this piece I used local newspapers and tabloids. Strips of paper are woven together in a meditative way to deal with the information overload, reminding us that we have to make choices in order to remain sane.

In this project I looked for rhythm from a perspective of wellbeing, which for me means the rhythm that derives from repetitive action. I think that we as human beings have an instinctive need for finding harmony through rhythm. After all, we are created by the heartbeat. I strive to connect to the rhythm within my own body through the repetitive making. The components I produce by cutting are gradually arranged into a wearable surface, a sort of textile by knotting and weaving into a pattern. My work becomes a pattern of elements, a visual rhythm.


“Energy moves in waves. Waves move in patterns. Patterns move in rhythms. A human being is just that, energy, waves, patterns, rhythms. Nothing more. Nothing less...” - Gabrielle Roth

Brooch, silver, 2016

Brooch inspired by the culture building Soria Moria in Oslo, Norway. By wearing the brooch you are the performer, not the audience. The construction is like a setting, which is an opportunity to express something. What do you want to say?
