My name is Kristine, and I am a writer, lecturer and the author of Aesthetic Sustainability – Product Design and Sustainable Usage. I am currently in the process of writing another book concerning anti-trendy, sustainable living, and I am absolutely loving the contemplation and investigations.


A couple of years ago I moved from central Copenhagen to Bali, Indonesia together with my two beautiful boys and my wonderful partner. Life in Copenhagen was good; the city is friendly and green, we lived in a great neighbourhood, we were surrounded by fun, kindhearted people, and we didn’t need to own a car, since we just bicycled everywhere.
However, we were longing for sunshine, coconuts, adventure, and especially for a simpler life in closer connection with nature. And so, after getting rid of all of our unneeded belongings and selling our home, we left Denmark.
As a part of moving from Copenhagen I gave up my job as Associate Professor in Sustainable Fashion at Copenhagen School of Design and Technology.

We now live in the middle of the jungle at the end of a dirt road. I spend my days in my jungle office writing, reading and drawing. And I find great pleasure in doing research in the surrounding regions on e.g. permaculture, crafts traditions and off-grid living.

The Immaterialist is my online laboratory, in which I explore the sustainable and fulfilling life in words and photos. I welcome you to join my journey.
