Eyes as Big as Plates is a photography series produced in collaboration with over fifty seniors from ten countries. Starting out as a play on characters from Nordic folklore, the series has evolved into a continual search for modern human’s belonging to nature. Each character inhabits the landscape in wearable sculptures made from natural materials.
Riitta Ikonen (b.1981) and Karoline Hjorth (b.1980) are the Finnish-Norwegian artist duo behind the ongoing collaborative art project Eyes as Big as Plates. Karoline is a photographer with a journalism and tall-ship sailing background and Riitta is a Finnish artist with an MA from the Royal College of Art, who grew up in the deep Finnish forests.
