In July 2019 five families gathered at my studio at Sjællands Odde and created robots, garden sculptures, dream catchers and more out of plastic waste.
The Climate Creature
The Climate Creature (Klimasprutten) is a co-creation project I conduced between the local school, Odden Skole, local businesses, and many local volunteers at Sjællands Odde, Denmark. The school children collected plastic trash along the beaches and at home and attached all the bits and pieces to the 12 meter long octopus sculpture which was afterwards exhibited at the harbor, Odden Havn, throughout the summer 2019.
My latest lamp sculpture is a commission for the professional community KLUB in the heart of Copenhagen. The sculpture is made of plastic waste found in the public space and in the nature by myself or locals who collect it and bring it to my studio.
Workshop on sustainability at E.ON
In collaboration with the innovation agency Democrative, I conducted a creative workshop at the energy company E.ON. The Employees went outside to collect waste from the public space which they brought back as building bricks for a mascot figure for the future sustainable energy company.
The childrens' opinion
Rasmus and Sylvester are cousins and participated in the baby whale workshop in September together with their families. They have a full understanding of the problem with all the plastic waste in the oceans.
Invitation to baby whale workshop
Following the success of Whale & Calf, I developed the baby whale workshop to help clean up the water from plastic waste. 5 families created baby whale sculptures out of waste found in the Copenhagen harbour. The workshop was supported by Kulturhavn365 and took place at Miljøkajakken at the Copenhagen harbour shore.
"Shells" Fashion Revolution
Shells was a commission from the Danish branch of the global NGO Fashion Revolution. The work was a part of a group exhibition that, along with a series of other initiatives e.g. the FashionRevolutionWeek, the FashRevHall 1-day festival and the #WhoMadeMyClothes campaign, created attention on the injustice happening every day in the world’s second most pollutant industry, fashion.
This commission of 18 sculpture miniatures is made of plastic waste found in Copenhagen in 2018. The sculptures have already left the nest as new years presents for a customers client’s - a wishful gift of thoughtfulness in 2019.
With love from the Azores
In the Summer 2018 I travelled to the Azores Islands to participate in a yoga workshop. Besides the yoga, I was drawn into a spiral of collecting plastic waste at on the beach. A beautiful edge of Sao Jorge where only few pass through showed me how plastic pollutes our nature when no beach cleaners remove the visual parts of the damage.
Materials from six months of trash collection all found in the streets, so far used in six different shapes. The “Re-artwork” continues as well the trash collection continually grows and transforms into treasures. Follow on Instagram #maj_d_art
The Plastic Whale
The plastic whale is created out of recycling plastics and exhibited at Amager strand and in front of the Danish Aquarium.
Individual art course
A 3 day individual art course proved how artistic methods could open the gate to a deep well of personal development and power. Not least my student who wanted to stay anonymous created the most amazing artworks.
Art workshop for kids
Working with kids is pure joy, so I was blessed to be invited to do an art workshop on ‘dreams’ at Sønderborg Library. Read about my workshops here.
