January 26, 2015 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.
September 2, 2014 Hei NYC
In just a few weeks I’ll be coming back to represent my new home country at the NY Art Book Fair in this year’s Norway Focus room.
At my table Jessica Williams + Friends I’ll be showing my own work, postcards from NSEW, student work made in a workshop I founded, beautiful posters from the Oslo artist space 1857, and more.
To be honest I’m pretty excited!
In 2005, now almost 10 years ago, I interned at Printed Matter. In 2006 I was a volunteer at the very first NYABF. Lots of good, funny and sweaty memories. If you’re in NYC and happen by PS1, do come in and say hi this time around.
April 8, 2014 Iceland
Today started out pretty horrible but it’s slowly getting better, especially after I remembered I’m spending next week in Iceland with some pretty amazing people. I haven’t been back since 2011 and never not in the summer months.
If someone reading this is there and wants to meet up or has some vital tips (as always) get in touch.
February 21, 2014 Palms, shadows, cats
Last week I was in Morocco with my partner and it was lovely. Pics are here (plus a new overall layout here). Right here right now it’s cold and snowy. Oslo..
In March I’m off to the USA for awhile, including a week in NYC.
Fingers crossed the weather is better there.
January 6, 2014 Places
Happy New Year!
Over the weekend I did a big update on Pictures from places. New photos are up from Antwerp and Massachusetts. Plus more even more photos from Japan, China, and NYC.
September 8, 2013 Japan
Tomorrow I’m off for Japan for three weeks. I’ll be in Tokyo, Osaka, and possibly Kyoto. If you live there and like to meet up, get in touch! If you don’t live there but have some tips, they are also much appreciated.
Until then: a faded tapestry, objects on books. It’s almost fall.
November 23, 2012 London
I’m going back to London tomorrow for the first time in almost 3 years (when this photo was taken).
If anyone reading this wants to meet up and get a coffee, email me. I’ll be in town for a week!
