Artist Recidency at Velferden

Three weeks in June, 2017, I spent three weeks in at the Artist Run initiative Veldferden, hosted by Maiken Stene. This is the third year of this residency and the residency had a focus on on working with the local community from the small town of Sokndal. I decided to work and collaborate with a group of kids from the local school. As a group we talked about art, played games, experimented with different materials and techniques.

 

(above) For the collaboration with the kids, i created a card game called Troll or Three. The game was design to discover the mystical in our surroundings.
