Visual-centric practicing between art and design, based in Bergen, Norway. The starting point tends to be investigatory, and the main engine is to collect images and then connect. The process is negotiating between the intentional and the generative output, in physical and digital material alike. This often results in handmade and digital collage, three dimensional collage and spacial assemblages, analogue photography and photogrammetry landscape.

While exercising states of representation, the intentions are essentially poetic.

This newspaper explores, through collage and glitch, the contradictions of the roman concept after which it is entitled. “Terra Nullius” is nobody’s land, empty land, territory that may be acquired by occupation. It’s a term that has been used to label uninteresting unwanted land; but also used in the justification of European colonisation, as well as to protect global commons from soveregneity, such as celestial bodies and the high seas. Cyberspace is by some considered a global common, and therefore free territory.

It’s a voyage from rocks — to mountains — to the celestial Comet 67P — to cyberspace — and back to rock, when ultimately Rosetta satellite crashes into the comet.

A comment on the intersections between the real and the virtual. But also the deterioration of the real into the virtual; and back again.






Eduard Imhof (1895–1986) plaster relief maps.




"In 1967, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union sign the Outer Space Treaty, formally the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies. The treaty declares the Moon to be Terra Nullius, a world belonging to no one. Around 100 nations still adhere to this agreement today.”
