I capture natural landscapes via various camera technologies and softwares, and proceed to work with these bits and pieces of nature based on their virtual outcomes. Whether I use a video camera in handheld movements resembling acts of scanning a scene, a 360 degree camera or a 3D scanner to record said scene, both the recording device and the presence of a human plays a role in the resulting work. The various technologies I use to record this all have something immersive about them, a will to see everything from every angle at the same time. In the process of recording and editing, I embrace the faulty details of the technology in use, so that I act on the technology’s conditions rather than fixing the appearing glitches. The resulting video works, sculptures or installations therefore bear marks of going through a process oscillating between control and chance, in search of some meeting ground between natures’ and humans technology.
I am a video artist born in 1991 in Kristiansand, living in Oslo. I received a BA from Khio in 2016, and started my MFA studies at the Oslo National Academy of Fine Art in 2019. I spent parts of my MFA studies on exchange in Helsinki at the Taideyliopiston Kuvataideakatemia, delving deeper into the Finnish video universe in the department “Time and Space Arts”.
