Welcome to my site! I work as a costume-designer and an artist, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

Move-in

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

It´s move-in day for “The Black Comedy”, which opens this coming Friday. Bømlo Teater is staging it in the culture house. Tomorrow the actors start rehearsals in the set. I haven´t seen a single rehearsal, and am looking forward to seeing how the farce is mastered 🙂

Peter Pan promofilm

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

A dark, cold night at the Visnes copper-mines. Wendy, Peter Pan, Captain Hook and two of the lost children are fighting. A film-team with aggregate-driven lamps and a director guiding them through one scene after another. Sword-fights by candle-light. It´s scary! And you thought Peter Pan was a children´s story!?!

Miyajima and Hiroshima

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

So much beauty and so much memories of terror in one day! My last day in Japan, I took a day-trip to Hiroshima and Miyajima, a small island right outside Hiroshima. Despite it´s small size, you can find several Unesco world heritage sites here. Starting with the great Torii gate. It is a symbol of […]

Kyoto – geisha-spotting

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Today I visited the Nishijin textile centre & museum. They had their own kimono-fashion-show, a weavery and a big museum-shop. The best part however, was the dress-up-like-a-Japanese photo-shoot. I choose the more-is-more version of the 12 layered wedding-kimono! Full on with wig and makeup and the works. 12 layers of heavy silk over a pair […]

Kyoto – temple-town and shrine-city

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

Kyoto – the cultural and historical capital of Japan. 1,5 million citizens. And so many World Heritage Cutural sites! There is so much to see in this city, everywhere you turn, it seems. When I arrived, I walked to the Kyoto Museum of Modern Art. And right next to it, the Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts. […]

Naoshima

Friday, October 14th, 2016

Naoshima – the little art island of Japan. Recommended by Tanja Beer, the pioneer of eco-scenography. And when I come, I land in the middle of an art-festival! The Setouchi Triennale. As you can see on the map below, it includes some island-hopping to reach over everything. But I´vé stayed here in Naoshima for two […]

Osaka

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

A capsule hotel! A real underground, all female capsule-hotel! My plastic cave is just at the end there… Here: Isn´t it cozy? 😀 So far, my first impression is that it´s quite noisy, with all the air-conditioning going on. We´ll see what it´s like to sleep in. And keeping it efficient: I bought dinner from […]

Kanazawa

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

I admit, I hadn´t heard of Kanazawa before, but now it´s a favorite city! So much culture, tradition and art, old and modern, in one place! Wow! If you´re ever going to Japan, try to make a stop in Kanazawa! Here are just a very few photos of what I experienced in one day in […]

Soka Higashi koko

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Another of the incredible experiences here in Japan, is the main reason for my travel: the Global Science Opera eco-scenography workshop. I have a class of 20 students, and in just 3 days, we will make a scene that will be incorporated into the opera. This morning when I arrived, this sign was waiting for […]
