Mr. Weber Carlsen holds a Bachelor's degree in Art History and a Masters degree in Architecture and Industrial Design.
His association with the peoples of Cambodia goes back to
1994, when he used his training in industrial design and architecture working with various humanitarian mine clearance
agencies on the design and development of mine clearance equipment. Recently he has lived jointly in Cambodia and his native
Denmark, working primarily as a videoethnographer. His work includes the film Anger of the Spirits featuring the Tampuan
people in their plight between Animism and globalization. He is also a major collaborator on the project, Voices of Khmer Rouge,
a 43-hour video installation with personal stories of 30 former Khmer Rouge members. The project was undertaken in
collaboration with the Danish video artist, Jan Krogsgaard and the Phnom Penh based, US-founded media workshop, Fit Media.
It is currently being promoted in Cambodia, Denmark, and elsewhere to coincide with the United Nations sponsored trial, in
Phnom Penh, of surviving Khmer Rouge leaders for crimes against humanity.
He is also involved in establishing a video documentation center for the indigenous peoples of Ratanakiri province, Cambodia,
with local and international NGOs such as DRIVE (Developing Remote Indigenous Village Education), NTFP
(the Non-Timber Forest Products Project), and CARE Cambodia. An example of Mr. Weber Carlsen's work
