I have a diverse background from a master’s in design, bachelor’s in philosophy and studies in applied and visual art. My work find itself in the borderland between fine art and discursive design. My point of departure is that humans understand the world through stories and material form. Through interaction with each other and objects.

While “good” design often is intuitive and measured after how little it makes the user stop and think, the same language and methods can be used in inverse to encourage questions. Developing objects, which works as a catalyst for thoughts, is something I continuously work with. Thus, I consider myself a storyteller. My work is in a figurative tradition, not as an imitation, but rather in a way of distorting representation. This oblique way of portraying reality speaks to me because it reflects that perception always will be an abstraction.
