About:

Hello! I’m Ellen, a Sweden based artist specializing in mosaic sculptures for public and private environments. My sculptures and reliefs in glass mosaic have a soft finish adapted for children (sharp edges are sanded down). With thousands of hand-cut pieces of mosaic a faceted surface with beautiful light reflections is created. It’s a similar technology used in the construction of outdoor pools, which means that my sculptures are durable and can be placed both indoors and outdoors – and will withstand both play, weather and wind. From a distance, my sculptures can be perceived as real, but when you get closer, it's like zooming in on a picture. Suddenly you see all the pieces like pixels. We live in a society where we several hours a day allow ourselves to look at a surface of glass: The screen. My pixelated sculptures in glass create an exciting visual apperance that alternates between different worlds – like frozen moments between the virtual and the real world, a sparkling dream world.

My degree project at Konstfack University of College of Arts is about the visual consumption on Instagram. How we several hours a day allow ourselves to look at a surface of glass: The screen. I have materialized typical themes on Instagram with thousands of pieces of glass, where the grout creates resistance for our scrolling fingers and encourage us to experience the world IRL. Material: Glass mosaic, grout, fix, fiberglass and styrofoam.
