SELECTED WORKS

Can frequencies and melodies influence the growth and formations of bacteria in the sewage? This question is explored in the project Contemporary Diagram – Berlin, a site-specific work inspired by the late-nineteenth-century hydrodynamic experiments of the Norwegian physicist Carl Anton Bjerknes.

Tides is a series of rising tidal records presented as a mixed-media installation of textile and time-based photographic works. Via the phenomena of liquid diffusion, Tides explores the marine environment and how it adapts to the gravitational interactions between the Earth, the Moon and the Sun.

The physical basis of HAEM is iron derived from an unexpected source – the human placenta. Although this transitional organ possesses a complex labyrinth of blood vessels, the placenta provides a direct connection between mother and developing child. Iron, plentiful throughout this process of exchange, plays an essential role, moving through this “maze”, guiding oxygen from the mother to the fetus.

Prospecting: A Geological Survey of Greys is a two-part project that appropriates the scientific geological methods of extracting, analysing and categorising mineral specimens. In the first part of the project, Jonsson initiated a mineral prospecting drilling in Sør-Varanger municipality to extract rock-core samples of metamorphic gneiss from one of the oldest geological provinces on earth.
