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.

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 […]

The 2019 Christmas ornaments

Tuesday, December 24th, 2019

If you have been following me for a while, you know that every Christmas I make one new Christmas tree ornament. (And that I swap with some of my artist-friends). Why a suitcase? I wanted the ornament to reflect my 2019, if possible. And a suitcase may or not be representative of that. In the […]

The Prague Quadrennial

Saturday, July 13th, 2019

I first heard of the Prague Quadrennial a couple of decades ago, my baby-sister was there when she studied costume-design, but I had never been. This year, I decided it was time! It was a wonderment of lectures, exhibitions, national pavilions, workshops, talks …. And sustainability was clearly becoming a topic which more and more […]

Pulpit Rock

Friday, June 14th, 2019

I love to travel, and I love to discover new things, new paths, new experience. And I realise I don´t necessarily need to travel too far, especially when I live in a country as versatile as Norway. It´s been a dream to travel to Pulpit Rock in Rogalnd for years now, and finally it happend. […]

Portugal´s wine-district

Sunday, March 31st, 2019

A weekend off in Porto, what to do… well, how about a visit to Douro Valley, where all the Port-wine is from?! I was invited by friends I met in Principe, and spent the weekend on a wineyard, with the Sunday on a little boat-trip up the valley. This is winter, can you imagine how […]

Porto SPACE conference

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

The final international conference for the SPACE-project, including lectures and workshops. I always learn so much at these. This time I came directly from the US, and was jet-lagged and got a cold on the plane (of course), but still enjoyed it. Since a couple of the speakers had to cancel last minute, I was […]

Portuguese tiles

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Portugal is famous for its ceramic tiles. I hadn´t reflected much about it. But traveling to Porto and seeing the amazing work put into the decoration on the exteriors of the houses, is just fascinating.  Below is a small smaple of some of the tiles I saw just around the hotel where I was staying. […]

Workshops in Porto

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Never too late to try something new, right? Like teaching composition-workshops to music-students!! I had kick-off session explaining what the GSO was, and challenged them to make the composition for the trailer for Gravity. Together with their amazing teacher, Oscar, they did it! I also held an eco-design workshop with the teachers, challenging them to […]

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 […]
