(Webpage, 2021)

www.i-still-loooove-you.com is an ”empty” / blank hompage that gets a new random background colour every time it's reloaded. The colors are from the 216 Web safe colors, which emerged during the early era of the internet; a standardized palette of colors that displayed consistently across all major browsers.

The thing's hollow -- it goes on forever -- and -- oh my God! -- it's full of pixels!

(Webpage, 2023)

This work is a interactive webpage. That showcases an endless stream of tiny, colorful squares (pixels) scattered across the screen in a dynamic and unpredictable manner. The artwork utilizes a combination of randomness and meticulous design, generating an ever-changing display of ten-pixel-sized boxes. Each box appears at a different position on the screen, forming an awe-inspiring tapestry of colors that seemingly stretches into eternity.

"No Love Lost in the Garden of Eden" stands as an exploration and tribute to the aesthetics of early internet culture, particularly the unsophisticated yet charming GIF animations that once proliferated online. Visitors are invited to meander through this digital terrain by simply scrolling through the webpage. ( The GIFs are randomly placed on the web page )

Virtual Total Eclipse (of the heart)

(Webpage, 2020)

I remember once when I was a kid and how I lay on the sun-drenched suburban road and stared up at the blue summer sky, I wanted to see it painted, painted black. Black as night, black as coal. Just then and there the sun was blacked out from the sky. (If the sun goes out, it will take 8 minutes before we notice anything) A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the earth. It then blocks almost all the sunlight from reaching the earth for a few minutes. The next total solar eclipse in Sweden will occur the year 2126
