During her residency, she created a piece titled “Face,” which she describes in her own words:
Imagine country like mirror. So our faces are mirroring. I walk,walk,walk and want to see that face. First fjord, bright fjord then mountains, together create lips. More animal face than human. Probably under water mysterious. She needs some strange eyebrows to protect her! I walk and walk,day by day in rainy,snowy, foggy country, and no sign of dangerous warning eyebrows. And then I know, it’s the night filled with all that warm lights of houses, boats, and aurora. Face becomes ready.
