This blog is a place for projects that do not fit on the main site jesper-carlsen.com because it is considered as an archive for completed artworks.

On a personal level it feels good to have a place for these projects and perhaps even set them free in a way. Then other might see an idea and develop it further.
Its something that I would like to see from other artists as well because I think it may show something interesting.
