Empire of Sweet Dreams
“Empire of Sweet Dreams” is the first 30 meters of a 70 meter wall between the new Bergen airport terminal, and Choice Comfort Hotel. The initial inspiration behind this work comes from Choice Hotels collaboration with UNICEF in an effort to protect children from human trafficking. The name of their collaboration is “Sweet Dreams”

When viewed from a distance, an impression of the overall narrative can be sensed. As you move closer more details come into view that offer an insight into a deeper story that raises questions about our conventional understanding of the world.
To sustain a healthy society , critical and free thought must be nurtured and given space to grow. For this reason I have included background information into some of the smaller compositions with-in this piece.
