Helen submitted a synopsis to the Eyeon Committee, and in 2010, contributed art work for Everybody Is A Pixel. Her Lego Light Space Modulator was exhibited at Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin in 2011, and referenced in the exhibition catalogue as "Helen A". 

Apparatjik Light Space Modulator, 2011

 

In 2011, Helen contributed to AGreenerYouniverse, planting a birch tree in return for the stems to Apparatjik's music, which were then edited for A Square Peg In A Round Hole.

The tracks "Don't Sue Warhol's Banana" and "Dot Comma S.H.I.R.K.A." were uploaded to Apparatjik's soundcloud. "Don't Sue Warhol's Banana" utilises the Sewell Sampler, and "Dot Comma S.H.I.R.K.A." samples 1980s Franco-Japanese anime Ulysses31. Both tracks were created using Garageband.

 

In 2012, Helen was invited to Oslo courtesy Headhunters film, Momentum and the Norwegian Embassy, to see Apparatjik perform live at the opening of the Astrup Fearnley Museet.

Apparatjik also exhibited at the Nasjonalmuseet for "I Wish This Was A Song" with Audiokolor and for a performance with Oslo Boys' Choir


In 2013, Helen curated The Lincoln Simulacrum to coincide with Frequency Festival in Lincoln. Based on a conversation with Magne A and Guy A, The Lincoln Simulacrum is the exhibited installation for collaborative projects The Outer Trial Bank and The Birds workshops, which took place in Norman St. old arcade / empty shop. The Lincoln Simulacrum aimed to recreate Apparatjik's Light Space Modulator for Lincoln - based artists to exhibit work on the theme of The Outer Trial Bank.
