I started to make these small pencil drawings during the fanzine week. I had a really good time drawing them and I found myself in a flow, completely in my own bubble. I just starting without a plan, except staying within a forest, nature -mystical kind of genre. I printet and bound two editions that I gave away for christmas.
Before christmas we had a course at school where we worked with visual identity. It started as a visual identity for a made up publishing house, but in many ways it became a start of discovering a visual identity I can develop further for my own work. I made a small booklet that showed the process and ideas. I made bookmarks with magnets, and also tried bookbinding for the first time.
Two week D-I-Y, autumn 2015
PART 1: Illustrating a norwegian folk tale through photos
PART 2: Playing with the use of objects, staging of objects and a personal system of symbols. In many ways inspired by still life and surrealism. I am not sure if the pictures illustrate the poems, the poems illustrate the pictures, or that the pictures are a sort of continuation of the poems? Anyways the poems are written by me mainly through the method of automatic writing, as some surrealist sometimes used themselves.
Title: Tiden siden / The time since
We had one week at school where we worked with fanzines. The theme evolves around personal experiences and feelings of powerlessness concerning time and the past. The illustrations has a touch of infographics, in the way that the the lines that forms the patterns are made through recalling memories and my own conception of certain periods of time. Even though it is formed by my personal stories, I didn’t want to be very clear or spesific about this, and rather let the reader find their own meaning and interpretations.
At the start of the autumn semester 2015, we worked with methods and process. The goal was to test new methods when working with ideas and process, and challenge ourselves to take different and unexpected paths. I worked with drawing through free association, and setting up both controlled and randomized boundaries to pull the process in different directions. It was fun and resulted in a two-sided poster/drawing and some gift cards. At the end of the semester we had a Christmas market at school, where I had printed these among other stuff to sell.
Illustrations for Vårt Land on print. I did the third one in august 2015.
Illustrations I made for a series of articles on sosiologen.no during 2015, concerning theory on contemporary society.
