On the project Immersed in Another World here: Kunstløftet

The project When Grief Comes was shown at LANDART 2015 in Ask. In this project I focused on the healing aspects nature, music and birds can have for those that are in need of healing and of seeing an end to misery. The Bluebird is an old symbol of hope and new beginnings. The shelter is made by Kjetil Sivertsen and Odd J. Martinsen.
