My works emerges out of my desire for and my interest in places and in the feeling of belonging to a place. With great curiosity towards different cultural backgrounds, and layers in society, I establish projects with a strong sense of place, in a way that engages the human body, mind and narrative. Often my projects combine artistic creation with a functional practice.
To express personal and existential characters in our digital age is also a concern of mine. Many of my built projects take advantage of computer and CNC technology in the production phase.
In 2007 I did my MA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen with part of my time of study at RMIT in Melbourne. After graduation I worked for architectural companies in Copenhagen and for C. F. Møller Architects in London. In 2009 I established my own practice SHJWORKS.
Many of my projects have been in places in Copenhagen. A few of the places is Trianglen, Holmbladsgade, Sundholm and Toftegaardsplads.
My work has also been on show at various exhibitions and galleries. Among others at the Tate Modern´s opening party for their street art exhibition in 2008, and at the censored exhibition Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling 2010 in Copenhagen. In collaboration with other architects I received a second prize in the Europan 2010 competition.
From time to time I collaborate with other artists, architects, and related professionals on different projects.
