Closing in

Longing to fly/Longing to fallPosted by Erika Janunger Sun, October 13, 2013 13:01:48
With only one week to go before take off to the shooting site, I feel strangely confident with all the work thats been done so far, just a little worried that my calm state might be the silence before the storm.

The last month and a half, the work has moved in a slow but steady pace and focused mostly around the designwork. Ive had brainstorming sessions together with costume maker extraordinaire, Helle Carlsson and with furniture designers Fredrik Färg and Emma Marga Blanche. Fredrik and Emma will put together an enitre furniture collection for the film wich will be launched in February during Stockholm furniture fair. So before then, no furniture images on the web whatsoever. Insted an image from the work table showing remains of sketching.

My own work with the set design and construction is also moving forward. Last weekend I had a mad "spattering" session trying to reach the magic point right between organic patina and concious pattern for a wallpaper background. Pretty proud of the Jackson Pollock moves I managed to pull off. When doing the same movement over and over seeing the spatter pattern grow larger and larger with every beat of the brush, you enter a quite graceful state of hypnosis.

Later I finished off the wallpaper together with my good friend Photoshop.
