Ingvild Danielsen photographs deal primarily with the language of limits. Within groups such as the BDSM community, codes and rules are developed to define peoples limits of endurance and pain tolerance. A polite civility exists within standards of acceptability. This extreme reality can often be more civil in the way it is enacted, than in how we interact with each other in our everyday lives. More generally Danielsen is fascinated by small scale systems in nature, and their parallels in man-made systems in society. This focus on strange but natural details, acts as a divisive pointer within a greater whole. We define those details as extremes so that we can describe the majority of interests, as normal.
