Ekotemplet (launching October 2020)

Illustrated by hand with a two dimensional layering effect then photographed.


I grew up in Solna, a suburb just to the north of Stockholm city centre and a lot of my childhood was spent exploring the local royal park called Hagaparken. I particularly liked to play in the Haga Echo Temple which was built in 1790 as a summer dining room for King Gustav III, who loved to entertain outdoors. As well as being a focal point in the park, the acoustics produced by the oval shape assisted the conversation of the king and his guests across the large oval table.

Inspired by a Swedish traditional weaving method called Näver using bark from Birch trees. It was first introduced to me by my Grandfather who emigrated to Sweden from Telise village just outside Leningrad, during the Second World War. Viktor was an exceptional craftsman and a proud Ingrian.
