The public art projects I´ve been involved with has allowed me to work with topics that fascinates me anyway, and methods of working that I may not have tested out otherwise. All in all, I don´t see these projects as separated from my other works. Obviously there are added elements: the site, an institution/ organisations history and a field of activity, and an audience which will be exposed to the piece, perhaps daily, without having chosen to.


Spesific conditions may require solutions where I work slightly outside my comfort zone. Different scales, different materials. Thus commissions can be a learning process, and experiences can be brought back to my studio practice.
