Coming up!

COMPLEX APPROPIATED FINDS

 

The ever so humble title; Master of Design, is basicly what I am thriving for these days. I will be showcasing my MA project this coming spring at Oslo National Academy Of the Arts.

 

Utilizing collage and appropriation as main practice methods, I will gather, re-develop and edit a personal contemporary textile and material library. This in collaboration with various, Norwegian weaving Mills. A curated archive of handpicked and further manipulated textiles will result in a collaged collection of textile elements that emphasize the complexity of our fluid society. From non-wearable textile sculptures and ready-made product design to wearable textile pieces, exhibited on and off the body.

 

In our professed liquid modernity, it is claimed that individualization is intensified and radicalized. Concepts such as authenticity in identification, self-branding, ignorance, unconsciousness, consciousness and ambivalence points to the complexity of individualization, whom people face and have to master. Observed through appropriated and distinctive textile finds and manipulations of them, the aim is to visualizes some of the consequences of the relationship between freedom and the complexity of people´s life «design».

SEASONAL VEGGIES

 

By illustrating the nordic vegetables of the winter season, graphic designer Thea Urdal and I are creating Lokal Kolonial´s first window display. This fennel is an outtake of our first sketches. Lokal Kolonial is a lovely, small grocery shop, combining local sourced food with organic produced food and necessaries. The window display is a part of a bigger project together with Lokal Kolonial.

Screen play costumes

DRIB DRIB DRIB

 

During the autumn/winter I designed film costumes for the first time, and it has been a real treat.  The clothes will be a part of  the talented director Kristoffer Borgli´s visual universe.  This is his first long screen play, that will premiere autumn 2016. The movie evolves around fake branding of a non-exciting energy drink, called DRIB. The film is set both in Norway and LA.

VIKINGGOLD DESIGN CHALLENGE - SKETCHES

EXHIBITION VOL.1 "TAKE IT PERSONAL"

 

 

The jury of the VikingGold design challange excepted my sketches and research work and the sumbmitted sketches is currently exhibited at the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo. This is the first stage of the design challange - where we soon will get delivered a recreated wool textile from the Viking age to create the garments from the submitted sketches. The picture shows the diamond twill weave.

 

VikingGold is a cultural and creative development project under the KreaNord umbrella, which for the first time has awarded funding to the textile and fashion sector. Denmark, Norway and Iceland have collaborated in this unique project, which aims to harness lost knowledge from our rich Viking textile history and fuse this inspiration into modern and exquisite garments for today – and tomorrow.

 

Using old indigenous sheep breeds of the North, old techniques and modern technology, VikingGold has recreated a material we now want to offer up to a choice group of designers from the cooperating countries: Norway, Denmark and Iceland.

The  Needlework & Technology Conference 2015 – Global Perspectives 16. – 17. March.

NORWEGIAN WOOL - NORWEGIAN DESIGN

 

 

Design: SoFi jacket

Inspiration: HÅG SoFi office chair

 

The ”SoFi jacket” is influenced by the customized features of the HÅG SoFi chair, to fit different environments. The jacket is a combination of a warm woolen sweater, office jacket and coat. The pattern construction of the jacket is based on the SoFi chair backseat pattern, where the seam over the shoulders of the jacket gently matches the seam over the back of the HÅG SoFi chair. As the HÅG SoFi chair is quite progressive in its shape and creates a sense of privacy, I wanted to create the same feel for a everyday jacket with a voluminous silhouette and a warm, safe shape around the torso.

 

Materials: Upholstery fabrics in Norwegian wool from Gudbrandsdalens Uldvarefabrikk and metal parts from the original HÅG SoFi chair. The jackets materials can easily be recycled, inspired by the holistic design of the HÅG SoFi chair.

MAXFACE EXHIBITION

 

 

MAX FACE is an exhibition dealing with appropriation, shameless branding and product placement in an art context. Artificiality and preciseness creates the framework for the visual expression. The duo mainly worked with the color green to build a universe where the perfect sunglasses could exist. The word max plays a central role, as it represents a viewpoint for observing branding as a phenomenon. Their perception is that the word max is one of the most effective and banal ways to market a mass-produced product. The friction occurs when the polished ideal meets the mundane.

ØPP - NEW TALENT SHOWCASE

 

64/14 - a unisex collection

Fundamental for my work is to collaborate with fine, dedicated  creatives. In this project I teamed up with graphic designer Even Suseg. He has drawn subtile lines throughout the 64/14 collection that was showcased at ØPP talent showcase.

 

The Japanese graphic artist, Ikko Tanaka, is one of my form giving hereos that has influenced this collections structure and silhouettes with precise lines, clean surfaces and grainy textures. I´ve looked into traditional Japanese workwear, old olymic training gear and the unconsiousness of our everyday dressing. I interpreted classic basic wear with a little piece of NIppon, dated back to the summer Olymics in 1964 and merged it into the our present time, 2014.
