Loading Please Wait


Artwork 'Loading Please Wait', an online edition made specifically for viewing via the internet. As ingredient for the body and visual appearance of an artwork, Sandberg here uses the internet language of the 'loading icon' to create an online infinite loop: an endless animation fading in and out, from 'loading content please wait' to 'loading picture please wait'.

No Image Available


Artwork 'No Image Available', an online edition made specifically for viewing via the internet. This online work from the project 'No Image Available' consists of an infinite series of 'blank images'. Sandberg has taken these out of their original context, just as one would encounter them on the internet, to import them into a site-specific internet work made of 'empty images'.
