Weird. Strange. Abnormal uses the forged vessel as a canvas to tell a story about independence, dependence, the small tribe or family and the longing for a frontier away from the core of an overbearing society. Each vessel forms a separate island, each with a little settlement hiding away where the broken shape allows it. Together, the vessels form an archipelago of small societies that are both together and apart.
The vessels are partially forged and partially welded into shape and then painted with a light layer of oil paint to both enhance the qualities of the forged steel and to protect it. The aesthetics of the project is strongly inspired by both the nature and the feeling of Bohuslän.
