I wrote this article about my artistic practise for the Danish Textile Guild’s magazine “Rapporter” for February 2020. The piece is in Danish and tells the story about how a weaving injury led me from working as a freelance weaver, to working as an artist doing mainly social projects in collaboration with others.

An article in Arbejderen in 2019 about the happening #VærdigPsykiatriForAlle that I was a part of with my artpiece Folkets Flag (The People’s Flag). The aim of the happening was to get the politicians’ attention, because the psychiatric system in Denmark is suffering from a severe lack of funding.

This video of me cutting some yarn off a cone back in 2016, ended up going viral and has been seen by literally millions of people around the globe. Many people were angered by the waste of yarn, and I agree! The only reason for cutting it, was that I was in a rush to get to the cardboard cone in the centre, to use on my winding machine, and this was a spare cone of an unidentified type of yarn I had lying around. At least it brought some joy and satisfaction to people to watch this waste in action but of course I would never recommend people to cut up perfectly good yarn for no good reason.
