Bjørlo worked with the staff of Tyler Graphics on a series of prints depicting the human head. The motif has a strong autobiographical significance for Bjørlo, who ran away from home at the age of sixteen to go to New York. He has described this experience as ‘looking for new rooms in his head’. The upturned face relates to this idea of searching. The stark, mask-like face underlines a bleak, introspective quality, which Bjørlo relates to his troubled early years.
