Holmstrom's body of work is characterised by a layered archive of interrelated narratives, blending references from both personal and collective histories to form artworks, where part of the story is always hidden from the viewer.
     
     This merging of closed and open source is reflected in Holmstrom's interest in subjects, such as the instability of memory and thought versus the more translatable forms of linguistic and written narratives.
