Frida received her bachelor of arts in architecture from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, followed by her master of arts in architecture from Aarhus School of Architecture in 2013. In 2012 she started her own freelance based practice and has executed several collaborative exhibitions and installations, all with her interest in the interaction between people-art-space-stories. In 2014 she was, in collaboration with Mie Dinesen, granted by the Cultural Affairs Agency of Oslo for their workshop based installations “Rom i Byen for Byen”.
After working for the artist Vito Acconci, and the architect firm VAMOS Architects in NYC, Frida became a Resident Fellow at Arts Letters & Numbers Headquarters in Averill Park, NY in 2015. During her time as a Resident Fellow she has worked closely with the entire ALN community on many elements that contribute to the life of the project and have strengthened the core mission. Frida has recently taken on the role as Associate Director of Arts Letters & Numbers.
Frida's artistic work evolve around the awareness of how we do what we do, while we are doing it. The context of her work is the daily life, the situations, rooted in culture and personality traits, we might not contemplate upon. Her larger body of work Why Are We Eating Together, is a research on the intersection of these patterns.

Featuring four immersive rooms that dealt with bullying, loss, identity and empowerment through one's talents and strengths, the young artists wrote their own pieces; there was dance, music, costumes, lighting and even short film pieces.
These new works exhibited at the Mill last Friday are a perfect indicator of the power of spring in the air. It's amazing to watch how the mill fills up with human spirit and it's wheels start turning as the temperatures rise. This beautiful group of artists, each with their own intimate and driven idiosyncratic approach to their work, created a thick and palpable emotive space when the works all hung together.These new works exhibited at the Mill last Friday are a perfect indicator of the power of spring in the air.

During the colder weeks of the winter, our Artists in Residence moved their studios from the Mill to the House on the Hill. Even though the grand space of the Mill has been in play in developing the artist's works, the House on the Hill added another dimension of scale and complexity.
Cassiopeia was an exhibition of works created at the Arts Letters and Numbers residency program on October 24th 2015. It came together as a constellation of ideas expressed in poetry, photography, sculpture, painting, music and comedy all set within the magnificent mill space.
