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.

Learning to fly

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Yesterday Peter Pan learned to fly. So did Tinkerbell, Wendy, John and Michael.

Backstage Peter Pan

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

21 days to go: So many things have happened this week already! As you can see in the video above. Monday the light-rig was set. And we got all the pieces of the set onto the stage, ready for: Tuesday and Wednesday the carpenters and technicians got up the flying-system and the complete set. No […]

Hook´s hooks

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Did you think Hook only had one hook?!? Oh, no! He has several hooks, each with it´s own  purpose. Two of them are presented here. Made by sawing off the stem of plastic glasses, drilling a hole at the bottom/top. Glueing on the “tool” of desire, in this case a salad-fork in brass and a “whipper” […]

How to sew an emblem

Monday, November 28th, 2016

One of the Lost Kids in Peter Pan, is a former boarding school student. So he needs a proper school uniform. A dark bottle green blazer and matching skirt has been bought on eBay. I did want to add a little imagined school emblem on the blazers. A quick google-image-search provided the image, and I […]

The pirate-flag

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

For Hook´s ship we need a proper pirate flag! I know they are for sale, printed pirate-flags very cheaply. But I didn´t want a pre-fabricated dime-a-dozen black-and-white pirate flag. I wanted a handmade one, in softer colors, with softer edges. So I used a meter of plain, black cotton Then I made myself a “brush” […]

streaming the opera

Monday, November 21st, 2016

Saturday was the world premiere of Ghost Particles, an opera created in 20 countries all over the world. Coordinating the pre-recorded films and not the least all the live-streamings take a quick hand and a cool head. Luckily we were in good hands at TV Haugaland! Tor Håkon got us all smoothly through the delays […]

Sewing Saturday

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

My absence the past weeks are due to a total exam-hibernation. Reading, writing, studying and reflecting. Hopefully I´ve been able to write something reasonably sensible. Anyway. So now it´s full force forward on the Peter Pan costumes! Luckily I am blessed with some absolutely wonderful friends. One of them, Nina helped me all day yesterday […]

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!?!

Lights and leaves

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

So a pretty crazy thing happened today. I was asked by someone in the technical department in the municipally to have a look at a stage-curtain, to see if it could be fixed. Turns out the municipal is restoring the old stage in the “town hall”. They were about to throw away a whole lot […]
