My work revolves around geological processes and phenomena. I’m interested in vast landscapes and rocks telling the story of the earth’s long timeline. I often travel to remote landscapes where I conduct experiments and collect materials for my work. My work is interdisciplinary in the way that I go with geologists and biologists on expeditions to volcanic areas. Having spent quite a lot of time in the field has informed my work deeply.
Out in the field my work is rooted in the body experiencing the place through my senses and physically interacting with the place. For instance, by climbing on the floors of a lava cave, swimming in a volcanic crater and so on. Finding materials and conducting experiments in this way, you could say that my work has its root in a phenomenological thinking.
I work with different medias such as photography, video, installation and sculpture in public space.
