DOLOMIT


DOLOMIT

The photographs were taken during my first visit to the Italian Dolomites and are part of the Pylod project shown above.

The series simulates screenshots taken of tv and webcams placed all over the alpin area and creating a personal view of a momentary parallel existing mechanical organism.

DIAPATI


DIAPATI

I was one of 20 photographers invited by the the ‘Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sited’ to join an exhibition project which was shown in different cities in Europe and Tokyo so far. Never published paintings of Edward Munch were shown side by side Tom Sandbergs and the other artist work. Our task was to interpret and visualize a defect of the eye.

“Diabetes Retinopati” was my choice and is based on the compensation of a missing sight spot by the brain. Here the missing spot is interpolated by the content of the nearest environment and compensated. I found it fascinating, since i saw parallels to digital work in photo postproduction. Often an eye defect can put the patient into difficult social situations as well, a fact which is  reflected in the environment of a glasshouse. The final work approaches the problem from two different perspectives : the outside and the inside.

The images deceive the viewer in many ways. Observing the images puts you into the position of having a visual problem. What seems to be manipulated turns out to be authentic and the other way around.

BLACKOUT


BLACKOUT

An on going project, which started with an group exhibition curated by the artist and curator Kristian Skylsdad in the Gallery Fimbul in Oslo back in 2006.

The unconscious and purposeless photo.   Scene Change. Moments in between the highlights. A state that does invite theorising. An opportunity to reflect the mental state that exists in the body and head. Subjectively speaking, this mentality holds more meaning than the artwork with the theoretical foundation. The experiment will be to transfer this subjective mental state to the public. In this way, to take back what the photo has lost, from that point when they  stopped seeing the photographer behind the camera. And the photographer stopped seeing himself.
