Portraits Of Seniors In Nature By Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen

Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen created the series ‘Eyes as Big as Plates’ that portrays local senior heroes, sailors, retired agronomes and 90-year old parachuters from Norway.

Says the duo about the project: “Starting out as a play on characters from Nordic folklore, the series has evolved into a continual search for modern human’s belonging to nature. Each character inhabits the landscape in wearable sculptures made from natural materials.” Currently, the team is running a Kickstarter campaign to fund a book that includes over 50 portraits.
