With my work, I wish to build a new foundation for being human.

INTRODUCTION


This website presents the work of Helene Lundbye Petersen. It is a doorway to a conceptual universe that mirrors life. It is structured into separate spaces to allow us to immerse ourselves in one aspect of a larger whole: Be it in the free, open space of the unknown symbolised in a blank white page; or in a series of coloured spaces dedicated to the fundamental existential themes of A Beginning; Wisdom; Pleasure; Battle; Love; Balance; Language; Time and Space; Nourishment; Skin; Death or Systems. These spaces are not static, as we may understand them differently, and they will change, as we change. This makes this universe an ever-changing prism that offers an ephemeral grasp of existence: A mirror to see genuinely where we are or would like to be.
