Espen Tversland is a visual artist who studied at Statens Kunstakademiet, Oslo. He works in several different media using various techniques which he integrates into his main form of expression: digital video, digital image processing and animation. Espen uses the point where humans and nature intersect as a starting-point and sparring partner in his artistic work. His artistic process involves solo-treks through nature where he enters into a performance-like state in order to allow creative processes to arise between him and the environment. He draws sketches, records spontaneous singing and video clips to capture moments which he then processes in the studio to produce the finished video pieces. The format of choice is short sequences (1-10 minutes long), digitally treated and combined with animation, which result in a visual expression fitting the personal experience of nature and the wider artistic concept. The videos reproduce the experiences in an abstract, mystical, surreal and concrete fashion.
