Works



Oonko se minä? (Is it me?)(2010)
This work gave name also to the exhibition.
The rotating images of mirrors may cause self investigation of viewer.
Materials: wood, plywood, mirrors, electric motors, chains end tubes.
Measures: 200 x 160 x 240 cm

Here you can watch 30 seconds video of the work. (6.3 Mb)




Kaakana (Far away)(2010)
The work shows an upside down image of the viewer.
But the name of the artwork is seen right way both on the floor and in mirror above.
I sketched this work in southern hemisphere.
A narrow closed alley of Fremantle in Australia caused the idea of this.
Installed there, passers-by would see the work only when they see to the alley
i.e. being in the right spot to see the effect of the mirrors.
The name of the sketch was "Sudden Homesickness of an Immigrant".
The work is called "kaakana", meaning "far away" in Finnish dialect.
Materials: mirrors (45 x 140 ja 50 x 125 cm), installation structures and text on the floor.
