Norveç-Finlandiya merkezli sanatçı ikilisi Karoline Hjorth ve Riitta Ikonen tarafından devam ettirilen bir proje olan “Eyes as Big as Plates” on ülkeden elliden fazla yaşlı insanla birlikte hazırlanan bir fotoğraf serisi. İskandinav folklorunun karakterleri üzerine bir oyun olarak başlayan portreler serisi, modern insanın doğaya ait sürekli arayışına dönüştü. Her karakter, doğal malzemelerden yapılmış giyilebilir heykellerde manzara içinde görülüyor.

İkilinin İskandinav halk figürlerinin keşfedilmesi ve yeniden inşası için 2011’de tasarlanan “Eyes as Big as Plates” modern insan için geniş bir uluslararası arayışa dönüşerek “Belong to Nature” halini aldı.

Hjorth ve Ikonen’in eklektik çabalarının ilk altı yılı, 2017’de kitap şeklinde belgelendi. Proje hala konu biriktirmeye devam ediyor.
