The majority of my projects deal with language (or semiotics) in some way, since they consist of signs representing specific information. The map and poker-projects are the most relevant examples.

 

The projects grouped as "language-based" deals specifically with words, either with the subject of translation, with narratives, and often specifically with the Norwegian language. I guess the latter is a minor barrier to the reader of this text...

 

Anyway, although wordplay and paradox-inducing juxtapositions in norwegian is out of reach for English readers, the visual element is as important here as with my other projects.
