TRINGA is a kaleidoscopic audio/visual experiment taking inspiration from a field recording of the constant repetitive alarm call of the Common Greenshank (Tringa nebularia) which is often heard on the tundra lakes and pools. The varying lichen types depicted have played a fundamental role in this environment. Known as a ‘Pioneer Species’ lichens were the [...]

As written earlier, when hiking in the region behind the Saana fjell i discovered a variety of very special places, where i collected sonic and photographic impressions. GPS geolocation was essential to keep track of all those places and media connected to them. Already having realized that the quality of recorded sound was in no [...]
