One of Everything

Embroidery project. 2018 – present (ongoing). With this piece I’m aiming to embroider one of everything, which might take a while. The plan is to connect them all and interweave the loose threads at the back to show how everything is interconnected, even though we don’t always perceive it that way on the surface. More […]

Small Things (misc)

Miniature sculptures in ordinary places, 2009 – 2011.

Along the way there are hidden scenes for the viewer to discover, turning this normally mundane task into an […]
