“The relationship between natural phenomena and technologies is an ongoing subject of exploration for me. I am inspired by the rough wilderness of the North as well as by the signs of human activity in the environment. Thus, my work tell more about people than nature: about the commodification of nature, the quest for raw materials and the symbolical and allegorical aspects of natural phenomena. I explore topics which deal with history, world politics, ecology, tourism and aesthetics."
