The text, being is a mix of my own words and those of the Great Norwegian Encyclopedia/Store Norske Leksikon and Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre/Artsdatabanken, was recorded with a contact mic placed on throat.

Video installation exhibited as multi channel with surround sound at Arteriet in Kristiansand and Vapaan Taiteen Tila in Helsinki. The video shows humans, ants and bats moving in distinct formations and patterns through natural landscape in Finland, Norway and Mexico. The humans, much like the animals, are moving around without instruction or a leader, as is moving on some collective intuition. The audio is a mix of field recordings and contact mic recordings of the sceneries surfaces, and become gradually more repetitive when group movements starts to form patterns or circles.

Applaus, BA exhibition at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, 2016
My bachelor project exhibited at KhiO in 2016.
The projections are slowly circulating around in the rig,
programmed to add a slight delay in the splits between each projector.
The audio is circulating through five speakers around the room in the opposite direction.
The prints were exhibited as musical records in LP sleeves,
with download links to audio extracted from the patterns in the prints, via music software.
Annual rings works as measurements of the time a tree has lived,
yet are only visible once you cut the tree down, and with that, ends its course of time.
I traced the pattern of the annual rings in plates of pine wood.
I cut the plates’ pattern in vertical lines doing mechanical movements by hand,
to imitate a digital expression that opposed the natural, dynamic annual rings.
I then translated the pattern to sound via music software.
In the music software, the image was scanned from left to right,
using the composition and colours of the print to evoke a melody,
ending up with a 30 second digital sound file that supposedly represented
the annual rings, like a false equation comparing two very different spans of time
through visual and sound based expressions.
Woodcut on plexi, 120×80 cm
Oil based ink and fluorescent light made for greenhouse.
The cut out lines are following the pattern of the annual rings in a plate of wood. It is printed with oil based ink onto the oil based surface of the plexi, transferring the texture and tactility of the pine wood to the plexi.
