art competition "tombstone"

The Association of Finnish Sculptors and HOK-Elanto
organized art competition to find new kinds of tombstones.



I won 3rd prize with proposal "An empty space was left in our lives".
It is an open box made of rust covered steel.
With burning candle it is like a lantern.
Letters are cut through with water jet.




The prototype shows, tumbstone is small and fits a single grave.
