Wild ambitions

Filed under: Writing

Since the end of 2014, I’ve (both intentionally and unintentionally) delved more and more into the Norwegian culture and way of life. This isn’t news to my cloest friends, but I have made the decision to live here permantely.

As such, I’ve decided to challenge myself to write a novel på norsk based on my family and growing up in the USA as a third generation immigrant. Major themes: language, soft racism and the search for a better life. Also some humor and early Internet bits, of course!

Jeg mener at innholdet skal være helt sant, men Rolf (partnernen min) ville at jeg skrive med frihet og fantasere litt. We’ll see! I’m getting quite good at writing and hopefully putting my own stories into words will lead to fluency. Fingers crossed.

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the new website. The concept behind the redesign is that each artwork (old and new) would be presented in a way that uniquely optimizes the viewing experience. In simpler terms: goodbye, portfolio.

One of the reasons I am so drawn to books and webpages is their inherent intimacy, the one-on-one. Hopefully this page can provide just that. A tip (or two): the icons in all four corners are always active and there are secret pages.

New website, soon

Filed under: Etc

Just want to write I’m working on a new website now. Moving away from a portfolio and getting back into this (web)space being my studio. I’ll also hopefully be posting here more regularly as well, especially after the demise of Sensitive.

What does this all mean? If I can figure out this advanced CSS, you’ll find out soon enough.

In an instant it all was gone. At least I have the fanzine from 2009 and a folder of images backed up from 2011. Tumblr is owned by Yahoo now anyway. Can’t even be bothered to use the !

Immediately created a new account so no one could steal the name, but R.I.P. Sensitive, 2008 – 2105. You were the best image blog this girl ever had.

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.

ART BOOKS FILM

Filed under: Etc

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!
