The commission “Friend” at Sandesundsveien School in Sarpsborg, Norway is installed after more than a year of planning and weaving. It was great to see it installed in it’s niche in the Schools main hall. The work is about Friendship and shows two friends parachuting hand in hand. They are on their way to School, represented by the red mark on the Google map, and they do the brave jump because having a friend can make you brave. In both ends of the almost nine meter long Tapestry, there are two winds blowing the clouds, inspired by figures on old medieval maps. I wanted to combine both the present virtual reality with fairytales and realism in one piece.
