Light installation, Nobel Week Lights, 2020.

This site-specific light work was made for Nobel Week Lights, and was prolonged until new years eve 2020. In Swedish it's called "Jag vill hålla dig i min famn men får inte" (translation: "I want to hold you but I'm not allowed to") which can be related to our current situation with the pandemic. Every day we are asked to take care of each other and think of our loved ones - at the same time as we have to distance ourselves from each other. Two opposites that make the desire to meet stronger. We get close when we are not allowed to be close. 

The installation was enlighten at the fifth  Hötorget sky skraper and was supported by AMF Fastigheter, LiteNordic Spaces, Martin Professional, Control Dept, Kreativ Teknik.

Light installation concept,Winner of Oysters Architect Competition, 2019.

Erinring is a light installation concept that is projected at the 1 km long rock wall next to Stadsgårdsleden in Stockholm, Sweden.
Time can be defined as a memory lane, a lane that often is seen as linear but can also be seen as rooms that can tangent each not dependent on the chronology. Events from the past can affect us as strongly as an event that takes place in the present. Just as the rooms affect each other, the individual affects the city's identity. Every person is part of the whole, every drop in the sea has an important place. The proposal wants to lift the people in Stockholm because it is thanks to them that the city's identity is created.
