The Sun - a presentation (Beddingwood series)

The Sun

The images in this series, titled Beddingwood, creates a realism that at all times is anchored through documentation, but at the same time creates a fictive zone that makes possible retrospective as well as sideways views onto the real world (Time maps).

The starting point was two huge industry halls at an abandoned shipyard, situated in Fredrikstad (FMV). Today these halls have been thorn down. In that perspective “Urban palimpsest” becomes just a quiet contemplation over something that is gone forever.

'The Sun' is the main image of this series. My intention was that every change of the view to another point, would also be a change in time and orientation - the perspective is torn 'inside out'. In this setting lines plays an important role. The title is 'approriated' from Edvard Munch's "The Sun".
