The collaborative DIGTEGNING is a smelter where drawing, text, photo and digital design is refined into pictorial surfaces. The basic idea of the project is the transfer and adaptation.
The works were created in close collaboration with the artists Lene E. Westeras and Kathe Oien where Oien deliver drawings and Westeras text. Both are photographed in the project and Oien has processed all parts digitally to the finished expression.
The lyrics are moving in rambling, timeless meetings.
The drawings have arisen spontaneously under observations in public spaces.
