Runner with unzipped hoodie

This is one part in a performance series where I use a small selection of dance steps to enact repetition, rhythm and the feeling of seclusion.

Each Day

(Video documentation)

Each Day is a video-installation depicting our planet as a cluster of forgotten machines, broken lenses and uninhabited spaces. The first room is fairly empty, there's a fuse box in the corner with a small red light attached to the back, slowly turning on and off, and on the floor, a stereo playing the same four minute track once every ten minutes. Whenever the music is playing it seeps into the second room, where a 17 minute long video is looping, showing surveillance camera footage from all over the world: Curtains blowing in the wind in an office space in India, a computer on standby in a cellar in Canada and a broken light flickering on a bridge in Poland…

Ingen Problemer

"No Problems" is a film about six characters and their personal relationships. The characters are all 3D scanned people who, while listening to the text of their inner monologue, move around in the "real" world where they don't quite fit in. Their skin reacts differently to the sun, their clothing does not respond to wind and their facial expressions remain the same no matter what is said.
They use hand signs, awkward body movements and dance, in an attempt to stage the texts being read. Texts that talk about the feeling of disappointing oneself and one's loved ones.

Now I see things for the way it is

A few years ago I discovered a chatroom online for youth who had isolated themselves from society by staying inside, and I decided to make an art work where I recreated four of the users bedrooms in 3D animation, using the pictures and descriptions being sent in the chat. In my video "Now I see things for the way it is” I have reused these rooms, placing one character in each, talking and singing about different aspects of, and reasons for, being alone or feeling lonely, like: Low self esteem, social anxiety, wageslavery and inceldom.
