In the nature all comes together

Media artist, Director

My way of working is very concentrated on momentary being and presence. Due to this I must be able to portray my vision also with rather minimal elements, which I am able to carry with me during my travels. This includes digital systems camera, light stand, strong flash light and sound recorder. With the help of these I execute my intuition in my work, both in the pulse of urban atmospheres and in the shades of a reindeer path around the wilderness. 

Living in the surroundings of Lappish nature has an indisputable impact on all of my works. The serenity, freedom, feeling of space and force of nature is perpetually present. When the weather whips its cold blows, the intimacy of a tiny cabin on a fjell or by a lake extracts such strong feeling of presence that it is hard – or at least much different to aim to reach within a city habitat. To this feeling of now, I lean my work.

My experimental short films and short fictions have been shown in several festivals nationally and internationally. Video installations, performances and happenings all combine into my language of creativity. 

To me being is like a glucking spring found from nature, from which I gather my nectar with respect and bring it to my art.
