The Framework // 2019 // IsThisColour? at Rundetaarn Copenhagen
There are many things that we as humans do not notice. We tend to overlook small details such as contrasts of colours, how the temperature of light can change the perception of colour and which materials we are surrounded by. These are all elements, that helps to shape our world.
The Framework is a framing, as ropes and lights divides the surroundings into smaller areas of focus. These shaped areas draws attention to details we otherwise would not notice. The framing can be rearranged, as the viewer moves in and out of the installation. Consequently, by changing the angles of view, the lines of ropes and light constructs different shapes and colours in relation with the setting.
The lines create interwoven hollow frames that are to be filled by the colourful life of the audience and the surroundings. By entering the installation the perceptional experience is enhanced, as the viewer is surrounded by the many layers of ropes and lights.The transparent space incloses the viewer and opens up for a new framed focus on the surroundings.

FRONT-BACK // 2018 // Exhibitor at Architecture Before and Now in Skagen, Odde Naturcenter, Denmark.
Working with two of Ulrik Plesner buildings, Skagens Museum and Skagens railway station, Ida and Mimi have created the light installation FRONT-BACK. Both buildings are build with focus on authenticity, simplicity and local materials and appears with their size and facade decoration, as monumental sculptures in the townscape.
However, a building is also all that’s hidden behind the facade and where the museum contains an important tale of the city's history, the railway station has lost its proper function as a railway station.
By drawing parallels to rhythms in the two building façades and the Utzon building, the installation appears from the outside symmetrically and flat as a facade. The inside of the installation contains a pattern of black surfaces that leads one's way through the space. The black surfaces are inspired by the museum's modern extension, that appears tall and uninviting compared to its surroundings.
Human movement through the installation will affect the its expression when viewed from the outside. It is therefore the people who move through the installation that gives it a spatial feel. The light is warm, colored by Skagen's red and yellow colors, and the installation is an abstract interpretation of the buildings appearance and use.

Moving it // 2017 // Exhibited at IsThisKnit? at 3daysofdesign with the textile group Kontempo
Moving it, is a sculptural object that shows the flexible properties of knit in relation to a captured, fixed shape. The small undulating and soft curves in the knit that are fixed in position, appears differently with the inflow of light and movement of the surroundings. The accumulation of the knit creates layers and negative space, that makes the knit even more perceptible because it has a sculpture feeling. This can give the audience the urge to look around it because there is no identical side and thereby play around with the free knit to see the possibilities that it has.
The perception of the object changes depending on audience, situation and surroundings, therefore it can be seen as a constantly moving object and experiment, that can create a narrative about the motion and possibilities of knit.

2017 // Experimental project
I have been working with making a flexible common room for a experimental housing project, Søkvæsthuset in Copenhagen. The idea was to bring people together and make them want to spend most of their time in the common room. All kind of activities should therefore be possible. I designed portable tufted carpets and weaved cushions that makes it possible for the user to create their personal space but also to be a part of the joint activities. The carpets have a softness that invites the user to lay down and hang out, while the cushions can be used as a back rest against a wall but can also be placed on top of each other as a stool. The scapes, colors and materials are inspired by the Danish baroque style of the building, to show the beauty in the old building.
