Et tre som eier seg selv, Installation, 2018
Et tre som eier seg selv is a comprehensive exhibition installation work depicting a potential work in public space. The work for public space would include a specific oak tree in Sofienberg park Oslo. Next to this tree is placed a plaque, stating that this tree owns itself. The tree in question becomes a projection of the human centric ideals. The simple gesture creates a myriad of questions concerning ownership, ecology, sustainability, and freedom. In exhibition a 3d model of the tree was placed into a wearable virtual reality headset, this was surrounded by physical elements relating to the potential project in public space, including archival material, printed bureaucratic material and 3d printed sculptural work. The project was awarded with the FKDS (Fondet for kunst- og designstudenter) stipend in 2018.
