Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, 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.

Self-sustained

Thursday, August 27th, 2020

Much of this summer has been in the name of self-sustainment. With the pandemic restricting our social contacts and travels, we have instead tried to focus on other important values. Growing our own food, forresting, faming, etc. I have become relatively good at baking breads, but I have still so much to learn about how […]

Facemasks

Monday, April 13th, 2020

Do facemaskes really help? It depends on the nuances of the question. They protect MORE others from you if you are carrying the virus without knowing it, than you from others. But it does reduce the risk of you catching the virus too. How large the reduction is, depends a lot on what material you […]

Arting in the time of Covid-19

Sunday, April 12th, 2020

These are strange times! Over 40% of the world´s population is now under quarantine or restrictions related to the Corona-pandemic. Myself, I am in voluntary lock-down, staying at home, only shopping for necessities. This must be the biggest social experiment of all times, at least in peace-time, and we have no idea where we will […]

The Full Monty

Friday, February 7th, 2020

Today is the opening night of The Full Monty (I blanke messingen) with Kompani Andersen. A small group of amateur-theatre-enthusiasts decided to stage the musical about the unemployed Sheffield-workers who put on a strip-show to earn some fast cash. Not unexpectedly, they discover that one thing is to undress, another thing is to do it […]

I am so excited, I just have to share the news with you. Eidesvik´s offshore vessel Viking Energy, built in 2003, is about to be renovated into the world´s first 100% emission-free offshore-vessel.

Welcome Home!

Monday, December 23rd, 2019

My dear sister Astri is back with her interior-shops Welcome Home, and therefore our Christmas tradition is also back. The tradition on December 23rd, where she runs the shop, and I help wrap gifts. It´s such a wonderful treasure to work side by side, spending time together. Here together with her husband and daughter who […]

Upcycled pouf

Saturday, December 7th, 2019

There never seems to be enough storage-space. So when I found this cute, little pouf, I bought it. It has the delightful characteristic that is is: 1. Big enough for storage. 2. Solid enough for people to sit on when I need an extra seat. 3. It is made of all-natural materials, a wooden frame […]

Gravity!

Wednesday, November 20th, 2019

The Global Science Opera premiers today with its 5th opera: Gravity! It is a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Eddington´s effort to acquire solid scientific support for Einstein´s Theory of General Relativity. He sent two expeditions to Sobral in Brazil and Principe in Sao Tome & Principe in Western Africa, where they would photograph […]

The Prague Quadrennial

Saturday, July 13th, 2019

I first heard of the Prague Quadrennial a couple of decades ago, my baby-sister was there when she studied costume-design, but I had never been. This year, I decided it was time! It was a wonderment of lectures, exhibitions, national pavilions, workshops, talks …. And sustainability was clearly becoming a topic which more and more […]

Porto SPACE conference

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

The final international conference for the SPACE-project, including lectures and workshops. I always learn so much at these. This time I came directly from the US, and was jet-lagged and got a cold on the plane (of course), but still enjoyed it. Since a couple of the speakers had to cancel last minute, I was […]
