I Haven’t Been to Himalaya and I Can’t Reach the Moon but I know how to difference a 5B from a 2H and I know how to grasp a theory — from a visual and a drawing point of view. I do also know the feeling of reaching and relating through an intimate and precise drawing process and the great importance of being able to conceive poetics through that act. A pencil is for me, a tool for reaching and relating to what I can’t observe without distraction, nor reach in reality. It is also a method where I can put attention to details and preserve what I can’t keep from the library.

“I regularly ask myself if it’s necessary to grasp theory as it originally was meant to be perceived, and if language based descriptions can become equivalent with any other result of reflection and sensemaking visual expression. Right now I have found the geology term Mass Movement, as a frame for me in this process. This is a good example for how I often work with some kind of facts, in this case a term from geology and geomorphology (the scientific study of landforms and the process that shapes them) where the use of it can become a theme for the visualized outcome. I like when reality gets potential to refer to more than one thing, and I like when things can turn out to be both precise and universal at the same time. Both beautiful, reality related and conceptual in the way the ideas has been realized into a piece of work. ”
