Gods & Demons of the Forest, was a series of drawings investigating Nordic light conditions during the Summer and Winter Solistice. The works were created daily during May – June 2014 at RUD AIR, in an old growth forest in the South of Sweden and during winter period November – December 2014 at Rasi637 AIR, in a forest near Kouvola, Finland. The process involved daily recording of the subtle changes in the transitions from day to night and night to day again. The recording of this disappearing daylight in Winter and the strange shadowless midnight sun was done by carefully placing a hunting camera in different remote locations in the forest. These thousands and thousands of images were edited and used to create a series of over 60 drawings and video works that were exhibited in solo exhibitions at Detroit-Stockholm, Stockholm Sweden in 2014 and Embassy of Ireland, Berlin, Germany in 2015.
