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.

Sao Tome & Principe

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Paradise. The most beautiful place I think I´ve ever been. With such beautiful and interesting people. Certainly one of the greenest. Both literally and metaphorically speaking. A small island-state, quite autonomous, ins West-Africa. Only 7500 inhabitants. That´s less than Bømlo! The rich nature was overwhelmingly beautiful. It was hot and humid and rich and green […]

Global Hands On Ocean pilot

Friday, April 20th, 2018

How do you combine the fields of science and arts, where both subjects are equal and contributive to the learning process? How do you get young people to embody new, scientific knowledge? How do you teach young people about the ocean and the arts, without art being “just a fun method” of learning? How do […]

The DNA workshop

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Working with three colleagues from the University, we started a two-day WASO workshop on DNA at a high school today. Combining arts and science. So how do you make art around the DNA-theme? By using macramé of course! By tying a half-knot over and over, it twists around itself like a double spiral, just like […]
