Inspired by the romantics’ belief that folklore is the clearest reflection of the soul of a people, Eyes as Big as Plates started out as a play on characters and protagonists from Norwegian folklore. During a one month residency at the KINOKINO Centre for Art and Film in the South West of Norway, the Norwegian photographer Karoline Hjorth and I collaborated with sailors, farmers, professors, artisans, psychologists, teachers, parachuters and senior citizens.
Hosted by the The Finnish-Norwegian Culture Institute, Eyes as Big as Plates had its first public viewing at DogA, The Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture Pecha Kucha night in September 2011.
