Print it with Riso!

Filed under: Workshops


In just one month I’ll be in Bergen teaming up with Ann-Kristin Stølan and London’s Hato Press to give a workshop.

Spanning almost five weeks and over three distinct parts, the workshop will give an introduction and the means needed to make a Risograph printed publication featuring one’s own work. Participants at the workshop will also have a booth at the Bergen Art Book Fair (November 19-22) where they can showcase and sell their books.

The first part of the workshop will take place on Friday, October 23. More info and lots of beautiful photos – I’m inspired to make a new zine just looking at them – are here.

I’m stoked to be included in ART BOOKS: a new independent documentary about self-expression and self-publishing by Claire Cottrell of BOOK STAND.

More information and a chance to donate to the project can be found on their Kickstarter. A lot of interesting people are involved and it’s an honor to be among the interviewees.

Bonus: I’m currently working on a new publishing imprint concept. More on that soon!

Tried to write a statement and ended up with a poem

Filed under: Writing

I find myself seduced by the sheer physicality of the world
Half the day spent behind screens of various shapes and sizes
Out in the world I am drawn to a particular situational aesthetic
Some sort of desolation, crisp focus, even light, etc
The best images are both familiar and alienating

Running barely moist palms over a smooth keyboard
The feeling of keys under fingertips typing click clack
Out the window are cars, buildings, trees
New and ancient technologies side by side
The oldest of which is nature itself

Italy (again)

Back in December Rolf and I were back in Italy. Just for a quick weekend in Milano, but we were able to take some photos before flying back to Oslo. Thanks to Petra and Alberto for making us the perfect walking map!

So many beautiful architectural details and textures, not to mention the fashion. The best: leather and silk, wool and nylon, garments fabricated with mixed fabrics in the same color. So subtle and good. Updated this page.

Happy New Year!

Thank you also to my anonymous (kind of, I think I know) friend who sent this in the mail.

Goodbye, NSEW

Filed under: Etc

Last chance: I’ll be retiring both the NSEW website and shop on January 1. Selected publications will still be available at physical shops until they run out, a list of which will soon be here.







The last four years have been a great learning experience but it’s time for me to move on, or at least take a break before starting anew.

Thanks for us, world!
