Eyes as Big as Plates is an ongoing project, this is from the artists:

Starting out as a play on characters from Nordic folklore, Eyes as Big as Plates has evolved into a continual search for modern human’s belonging to nature. Inspired by the Romantics’ celebration of imagination, each image in the series presents a solitary figure in a landscape, dressed in elements from surroundings that indicate neither time nor place. The scenes take into account qualities of timelessness and universality, yet suggest an additional narrative by revealing traces of the characters’ individuality and signs of contemporary living.
