Helen has worked with Magne Furuholmen since 2007, when she created a doll for his "Scrabble" exhibition at Sørlandets Kunstmuseum, Kristiansand, Norway.
Two dolls were created in collaboration with the artist Magne Furuholmen (also a band member of A-ha), for his "Scrabble" installation at Sorlandets Kunstmuseum, Kristiansand, Norway August 2007.
Manga Magne is based on a photo of Magne wearing a kimono and has fully articulated limbs so that he can do karate.
Minor Magne is based on Mags from the release of A-ha's Minor Earth Major Sky, in which Magne, dressed in the original spacesuits from the movie Apollo13 for the video, demonstrates the ease of going to the toilet at a press conference.
