Jørgen Møeller Hansen

1954 - 2012


After years of working with graphics, mostly with screen graphics as my favorite artistic expression, I discovered the possibility of combining this interest with my fascination with the sky. To build kites I perceive an opportunity to design graphics with the sky as a dramatic and changing background. Over the years, the graphics on my kites have been based on white, as I want to get an airy and easy expression. Kites are flying structures and signs on the sky. Simultaneously kite flying for me is an outdoor life that connects with the elements. Kites pull "the other way" - and give lightness to the gravity of the earth. Inspiration often comes from music, it is necessary to perceive rhythm and sequences, however, the graphic elements must also work against this rhythm and stability, perhaps "heavy metal jazz". JMH
