Personal Work – TV

As you may know I have created a few more pieces that goes along with the concepts of my older Temptations series. Previously I’ve shared the pieces Gold  and Bacon. If you missed them you can check them out HERE and HERE.

temp·ta·tion
tem(p)ˈtāSHən/
noun
1. a desire to do something, esp. something wrong or unwise.

The one I’m sharing with you today is titled TV… for obvious reasons. This was also the first time I played with this background colour, quite like how it turned out. Enjoy!

Personal Work – Bacon

I have created a few more pieces that goes along with the concept of my older Temptations series. Previously I’ve shared Gold which you can check out HERE if you missed it.

temp·ta·tion
tem(p)ˈtāSHən/
noun
1. a desire to do something, esp. something wrong or unwise.

Keeping this definition in mind the conceptual Temptations series was created fixating on the negative lifestyle habits and addictions of humans around the world. Though the theme is dark the series is kept light-hearted, full of bright colours and carefully styled objects to match.

The one I’m sharing with you today is titled Bacon. Because we all love Bacon (except if you’re a vegan I suppose). Also, fun fact of the day:

  • I’m Danish. Bacon comes from pigs. For every Dane in the world there are more than 5 pigs in Denmark.

We are vastly outnumbered. So eat more bacon!

But watch out… (Especially if you don’t have free healthcare like those communists socialists from Denmark…)

You’re still here…
I’ll give you a second fun fact of the day: There are about 450000 calories worth of eatable meat/fat in a pig. With an average human daily calorie intake of 2250 there are enough pigs in Denmark to feed every Dane for more than a thousand days. That’s almost 3 years!**

 

 

 

 

**Calculated with rough school math by a creative person…

New Work – Remains

 

New Work: REMAINS

The series Remains portrays a handful of World War II bunkers located on the Danish West Coast in the Oksbøl Military Firing Range close to Blåvandshug. The firing range is the largest of its kind in Denmark. 
The bunkers were part of the Nazi regimes Atlantic Wall, stretching along the coast from Norway in the North, all the way to the Spanish border in the South. Close to 5000 kilometres of concrete fortifications and other defensive measures.
The bunkers exhibited in this series were all originally built in the sand dunes but are now, after decades of erosion and exposure to the elements, slowly being swallowed up by the Atlantic Ocean
It is unknown how long these relics will remain. For now they still stand as a strong reminder of the past.
