Many of her art-projects have been interactive and involved various interdisciplinary collaborations, produced within the institutional framework of Public Arts Norway.

Currently she is working on a series of visual artworks, based on a selection of essential key questions defining the complex and messy process of energy transition.

The key questions have been identified through dialogue with Kristin Guldbrandsen Frøysa and other core members of the Energy Lab.

The results will be on display in the solo show "Potential Exceeds the Demand" (title found within Finn Gunnar Nielsen’s Energy Lab presentation "How Much Energy Does the World Really Need?"). The exhibition “Potential Exceeds the Demand “opens 10th of May 2019, at Hordaland Art Centre, Bergen. 

The seminar will be held in the Helland-Hansen meeting room at the Geophysical Institute, Allegaten 70, from 12:15 to 13:00 (we open the doors at 12:00).

The seminar is free and open to all interested parties, so bring your lunch and join us for an interesting presentation followed by a Q&A session.
