So when it comes to watching TV or a movie we love
to see those forbidden acts.
Some people change place due to free choice others
are forced to leave, some can bring there belongings,

When the conception of this work began the idea was to create
an environment for the process of dissolving borders and barriers,
to dissolve, in order to create.
For us space is something good, something connecting people and
mind. In conflict with this, we experience a world where literally
everything is put into boxes, packed-in and packed-up. Daily life
boxed in different files and folders. So for us the storage-box
became a visible, concrete expression of the structures of modern
life. The way we live and interact in this complex fast moving life,
the box has became our inspirational source. People always on the
move, are we on the edge to become modern nomads, travelling the
world from our sofas, nailed to our TV’s, computers, palms, cellphones,
-our new boxes...?
The borders of travelling is dissolving. The box is no longer what
it was, just box for storage and transportation. No today we go
beyond this – the box has become a doorway through which we
move in time and space, through which we communicate, it’s no
longer a protecting environment for physical or mental goods, in
fact control is something less and less guaranteed – you don’t
know what can come out of the box. The world is constantly
accessible, but not necessarily fair or beautiful.
In Dissolving self, we make combines; storage boxes with songtitles
and sound-scapes. Songtitels that twist the perception while
watching the images in the boxes. Ambient sounds that prepare the
space mentally for memories, maybe to set of chains of associations
and memories. We see our work as a construction-site, -a buildingspace.
Environments with light, shadows, collors and sounds, a
space to be moved inside, merging with the images and the sounds
in order, -to dissolve, to create, -to open your mind.

An environment with boxes for storage and transport, some with photographic
images lit up from inside. Boxes placed in a despoiled diversity.
As single pieces or in groups. An environment which sometimes can
remind of an overturned attic or basement where someone just left
without sorting the order back. Somehow it reminds of a landscape or a
Clamped to some of the boxes are cardboard strips with written songtitles.
Ambient sounds comes and goes, sporadic and quietly overlapping
music-fraces from major popsongs with loops of urbanic noises.
Together the environment of Dissolving self creates an atmosphere full
of metaphors and associations, -which can be felt like windows into our
