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.

Eternal Theatre-magic

Monday, November 23rd, 2020

The Nordic Drama-pedagogical Magazine invited me to write an article about Ecoscenography in their issue about sustainability. So this was my summer-job this year. I never would have done it without the help and encouragement of my co-author Ida Fugli. She´s a dear friend and an excellent academic AND contemporary theatre-maker. This is a mile-stone […]

ENERGIZE!

Friday, November 20th, 2020

This year´s Global Science Opera production focused on energy and sustainability. 16 countries participated, from 5 continents. In 60 minutes of song, dance, music, stop-motion, rap, symphony orchestras, puppetry, choir and theatre, the students perform their own creations teaching us about all types of energy, from kinetic energy to renewable solar-power. I am humbly proud […]

How can we make theatre more sustainable?

Monday, September 28th, 2020

Now, that is the million-dollar-question! How to make theatre more sustainable? In my master-thesis I made a model, a suggestion to an approach of how it can be improved at least in every department in every phase of a production. This fall I will be able to test it out in practice in collaboration with […]

Art on the moon

Friday, August 28th, 2020

What a weird title you might think. But it is absolutely true! At least it will be in a couple of years. This image is from @euromoonmars and it contains 100 artpieces that will actually go to the moon! Each square artpiece is 1 x 1 x 1 cm, so totally it will be a […]

A real-life researcher

Tuesday, January 28th, 2020

Hello. My name is Janne, and I´m a researcher. The past years, as the market for new-built offshore vessels have gone down, and the shuffeling of jobs in the theatre-section has led to less (paid) artistic work for me, I have gone back to my “roots”. Taking all my experience and knowledge both from the artistic […]

CASE

Tuesday, January 28th, 2020

CASE stands for “Creativity, Arts and Science in Education”. (Click logo to get to website). The CASE project relies on an understanding that scientific inquiry must be known more as an integral part of daily life and less as a faraway myth occurring in isolated institutions. In our increasingly knowledge-based economy, education systems need the […]

It is a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Eddington´s effort to acquire solid scientific support for Einstein´s Theory of General Relativity.
