I’m interested in the concept of reality, how it is perceived and filtered, and how it is in constant fluctuation between what was and what will be. I’m intrigued and fascinated by the technical aspects of the photographic medium, and in my work I seek to experiment with and push the boundaries of conventional photographic technique. Traditionally, a photograph captures a single moment in time. In my work, I try to expand that instant, by literally letting movement draw itself into the picture. This way, the instant can stretch itself towards infinity, and the picture becomes a living scene that you can enter, leave, and come back to again.
My TREESCAPES project explores the Danish forest as a place of contemplation of both Nature and of human experience of life. To me, it’s interesting how the forest encompasses all stages of life at once and just next to each other. There’s birth, there’s death and there’s everything in between. Visually, the forest offers an incredibly detailed scene, minutely composed of different surfaces, colors, sounds and scents, all in motion simultaneously. It’s a synesthetic experience.
