Open day at the workshop

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

Saturday, we invited the public to an open house at the workshop. It was a social event, and lots of people stopped by. Everyone that came, had to drill a screw into the fish, as a symbolic participation and ownership in the project. Old and young! The kids also had the opportunity to make their […]

“wild” electricity

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Working with 7th-graders at a CREATIONS´ WASO-project. The theme is Electricity, and the students studied electricity in nature, untamed, and the traces it left. This inspired them to make their own versions, put together as the set for the little opera.

Seaplastic, day 3

Monday, August 7th, 2017

Visiting the western-most part of the island (Hiskjo), where we found some surprisingly clean beaches! Beach-combing for the hard-core! A beautiful sight: this cannister says: Don´t throw away! To be used by all of us for beach-cleaning. Back at the workshop, cleaning today´s findings. Catch of the day is the little seahorse 🙂 Elizabeth started […]

Sea-plastic art, day 2

Saturday, August 5th, 2017

Well, we finished washing the trash today, at least what we have so far. And when Elizabeth started color-sorting the plastic, the beauty appears pretty much straight away. But we some really cool plans for this plastic. It is no longer waste. IT will become the coolest fish on this side of the Gulf-current! 😉 Photos […]

Land art

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

For the first time in almost exactly ten years, I am back at Bømlo Folk High School teaching. This time only for a day. A creative Saturday!

Over 2000 people work at this site alone. Below is SMART-1 On December 13th, the premiere of Moon Village will take place all over the world. […]

Kids embroidery workshop

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

The art group had a couple of hours of children´s embroidery workshop today. A good handful of kids showed up and got their try at sewing. This girl had an elaborate story of the treasure map she was embroidering. There were keys hidden in the map. Made of lava and water and gold. She sounded […]

The black laced choker

Monday, February 27th, 2017

For the freestyle machine embroidery workshop jewelry, I wanted to make a couple of examples. This is one of them. I first made an outer line of a lace-choker. I then started to fill it. By simply sewing a geometric pattern of little “fans”, I filled the space between the two lines more or less […]
