About Karl Hallberg
I am an artist, crafter and educator with a material and craft-based practice.
My works are often sculptural installations with found materials that have been processed with craft methods and techniques. Material and form are often part of narratives found in the human life and our culture.
In my social practice I use craft and sloyd both as techniques for making but also for bringing people together, to see their own environment from a perspective of the producer rather than the consumer, to enable and create local capabilities and new communities.
To me material and craft are both the means of production and a way of experiencing the world. Craft as sculpture is a way to communicate with many of the human senses and propose different experiences of the world.
