Working on a new site specific sound installation commissioned by the BunkerLove Art Festival 2013. The festival is taking place in July at the westcoast beaches of the northern part of Denmark. About the festival:

"BunkerLove is an annual art festival based on a long-term strategy of creating a physical and virtual cultural transformation of Hitler's Atlantic Wall WWII bunkers. Around 14000 bunkers dot an extensive system of coastal fortifications from France to Norway, forming a bleak reminder of a dark episode in European history. BunkerLove aim to breathe new life into the bunkers with cultural happenings which both commemorate lives lost and ponder past mistakes as well as look to the future positively."
