IDEA; A comment on and an awareness of our responsibility for declining biodiversity.

In the project I would bring back the Herabarium of The Swedish scientist and Botanist Carl Von Linne ́s from London Linnean Society,
United Kingdom, to Sweden. As part of the proces of creating the art I would hold several workshops, engaging the population in Växjö
to do present time photo registration of plants, fish, insects and birds in the nature surrounding Växjö.
I got the permission from The Linnean Society of London to use their digital representation of the collection.

My proposal consisted of three installations corresponding to the primary axes of the building enhancing them as well its relation to the urban context
and the nature surrounding it.
Size: Three installation parts, Part 1 was 100 meter long, part 2 had a height of 27 meter high and part 3 was 16 meter long.
Materials; Transparent and translucent laminated glass sheets, metal, Wood, LED Light and TUBE-light as well 4 video monitors.
Technique; Digital manipulation of photos, prints or laser engraving, LED-light and an Interactive Instagram profile.

PRE QUALIFICATION
In spring 2019 I was invited to do a sketch proposal for a public art project
for the new townhall and the train station.
I presented the sketch proposal- “Tendenser i lyset” a
site specific – contextual art installation – inviting for co-creation.

In Danish from page 3 in catalogue;
Da jeg var barn holdt jeg af at samle forskellige blomster og
lægge dem i pres i aviser, som jeg lagde ind i bøger.
Saften fra blomsterne blev optaget i avisen og tilbage havde jeg en todimensionel blomst,
som et billede på naturen. Således kunne jeg mindes blomsten.

Det er det jeg, sammen med dem, der vil samskabe kunsten med mig, Växjö borgere og andre kunstnere,
vil gøre i Växjö i Carl Von Linnés fodspor. Jeg vil med

udsmykningsprojektet Tendenser i lyset

– Invitere til fælles bevidsthed om Växjö som en grøn by
– Gå i dialog med arkitekturens og infrastrukturens hovedakser
– Møblere bygningen med abstraktioner af ”Tæppet”, ”Sofaen” og ”Lampen”.
