The work includes installations, objects and sculptures within the public spaces. Narratives, time, space, and conceptual ideas is the foundation of all projects and exhibitions, as well as interactive gestures that communicates with the public.
Some of the works are shaped around a space or the void in between, other seek contact through light, sound, images, texture of time. There are often modest aesthetics in the works that consciously meets the public on a closer encounter.
Patterns of repeating forms are connected to a larger coherent installation in some of the works. There is always a narrative behind every work that shapes the artworks and connects to its contexts.
Time as a method is often used for temporary installations, and site specific works but also as a concept and a method that destroys the work over time, or liberates it from a form.
Another part of the work consists of artistic assignments such as cultural planning project, reference assignments, for cities and regions on (mainly) the west coast of Sweden.
Board missions with a focus on quality and awareness on artists situations in society in different regions as well as establishing new methods of working with art.
Art direction and project managing the project (X)Sites deals with establishing a platform for land-art / sites-specific art in three regions and 12 municipalities, through international collaborations.
Via the organisation Trans Europe Halles, a network of artists has been generated, through participation in their programs in different countries in Europe.
A development work has been initiated with focus on how new technology can be used in public art. With new technology means video and video documentation, animation, device implementation, projections and other communication methods for public art.
A part of that work will be done together with the new Art and Science centre that is being constructed in Lund.
The art in public spaces are lacking in digital aesthetics, even though many great works has been done. Public artworks are still created in traditional techniques that quickly becomes monumental in the aesthetics and passive in communication, and those methods of speaking does not stand in relation to present time. How art made from video, animations and light, directly relates to the space and how they interact with the public is the primary focus of the work.
