    Hi,……..Finally I managed to outsmart my own overly secured mac,….and am able to join you all.
    I am an German-Norwegian Woman,…..who mainly at present , is working with Multimedial Art……My background being PhysicalTheater and Film,……….I took up Photography(again) as my main medium of expression, during my first year of my Fine-Art-studies…….and still is the camera the eye i see through when working.I tried to load up my latest Photo-loop-with-sound,…..but the content was to big for this site,……so i ´ll just send this collage of pictures from it……..My theme was loosely founded upon H.C.Anderssens Fairytale:The little Meermaid,……in my version: Meermaid gone wild,….an exploration of what happens when you loose the access to your own body ,….the transition from one element to another,…(the deep emotional-level ,which in jungian psychology is the watery realm),…. when you find yourself “on shore”, with new Feet ,…after you almost lost yourself due to indulging in the kind of love which calls for surrendering one self,…… transforming yourself into someone else………for the sake of being accepted /loved by your object of desire…..and the way back to ownwership of one self again .Furthermore i had some text performed live , which was (oddly enough), about the Mother beckoning her girls(Meermaid´s)home…..This Fairytale made such an Impact on me as an little Girl,….that i seriously cried everytime i reread it:)
    I often connect my work to either Greek Mythology,….and/ or the European Fairytale tradition,…since i find working with Archetypes very interesting.
