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 […]

River.global

Sunday, October 18th, 2020

I´ve been involved in Rivers.global since the start (although I am on a break now), and firmly believe in thier effort towards make the oceans cleaner and less polluted. They want to do this by gathering much of the plastic litter in the rivers before it reaches the sea. Finally they have a river-cleaner in […]

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 […]

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 […]

The big garage-sale

Sunday, August 16th, 2020

In an attempt to be slightly more sustainable, a couple of friends and I arranged a big garage-sale. In the end five friends  and a theatre(!) showed up with stuff to be sold second-hand. It is of course much better to resell and buy second-hand than to constantly buy newly-made things. The Earth is under […]

The magical, mystical, the weird and wonderful world of books!

Saturday, June 27th, 2020

A good book is a treasure. It can take you deep inside yourself, or far, far away. To other other worlds, to other cultures, to other minds. It can broaden your horizon and it can broaden your mind, your imagination, your talents, in addition to your knowledge. It can make you forget yourself, forget time […]

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 […]

Viking Energy – renovation!

Thursday, January 23rd, 2020

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. (click on the picture for Norwegian news-article) The new fuel will be made of ammonia, which only lets out pure nitrogen and […]

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 […]

Upcycled cupboard

Tuesday, November 26th, 2019

Our local recycling center has an own department called “Too good to throw away”, where people can put their stuff instead to tossing it in the dump. And others can pick up what they like for free! Aaaaand I found this wooden commode there and thought “Hmmm, I can do something with this!” I also […]
