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.

Ivar Aasen

My very first platform! I am so excited to share with you the news: today I have been onboard a oil-platform, more precisely the sleeping quarters of a new platform. And I left empty-handed 😉


It may seem small in the picture above, but it isn´t at all. 16 floors and about 70 meters above ground. (The photo is taken from the heli-deck of another platform, still in the making).


The ship-yard who´ve built the platform, asked me to make a picture for the platform, as an official gift from them to the owner, Statoil. An honor I very happily accepted!


The picture is in quite bright colors, to complement the fuchsia-colored leather chairs and cabinets in the room. All the chairs are stacked away for the travel across the North-sea and the room will be refurnished once the platform is in place and secured to the ocean-floor.


The motif is one of the over one thousand islands of Bømlo. The platform is built in Stord, but it´s the same region, and these small islands are quite characteristic for Sunnhordland, our region. I wanted the platform to take a little piece of it´s history with it, since it´s been built here. Below is the original with the true colors:


The picture is 120×180 cm, digital collage printed on aluminum.

November 20th: I just got an email with a couple of photos of the art onboard. The platform is now in the North sea, joined together with the other parts of the platform and with all the furniture in place.
