Jorun Jonasson ​(b. 1984, Stockholm, Sweden) is a mixed-media artist, working with text, photography, digital media, found objects, textile, and drawing. Her interests revolve around the act of thinking, the twist and turns of the history of psychology and the bizarreness of quantum mechanics. Her work is based on research, made in a chaotic process – were she finds bits and pieces and puts them together into non-linear narratives.
