Read more...

3 RGB color and ambient light sensors that detect the incoming light from one point in the sky is placed on top of the building, timed to work one at the time. A light emitting wall is translating the incoming data into temporally adjusting colors and brightnesses. During the day the data runs in real time and during the dark hours from the saved data of each day.

The illumination wall consists of  162 sandblasted u-profile glasses and 162 led light rails. It runs along the curved auditorium wall, facing toward the foyer space. It is located inside a auditorium volume that is enveloped with semitransparent glass and is situated above the main entrance of the hospital.

The work is realized in co-operation with White Arkitekter AB / Fredrik Mats Nilsson for Uppsala Akademiska Sjukhuset.

Electric technician Gregoire Rousseau, programming Eetu Huhtala, lighting entrepreneur SAAS Instruments.

Curator Lotta Mossum, commissioner Eva Rosengren / Uppsala Region, Kultur och bildning.

It´s A Silent Agent Doing Its Thing (2016)

Stones, Silent Cracking Agent, sound of a stone splitting, building materials from location and from studio practise

Solo show in gallery Hippolyte, Helsinki.

Read more...

The work makes use of soundless cracking agent, an expansive mortar, that was developed for splitting rock and concrete in urban densely built areas without any noise or vibration. The cracking is a result of pressure created by the expanding agent. In the installation the moment when the stones crack is unpredictable. Whereas the new, silent and unobtrusive method improves efficiency in urban construction, in the exhibited piece it works in the opposite direction. The time in the installation makes no concession to the gallery’s opening hours neither to the stuff or viewer’s schedules. The stones are cracking in their own time.

The work addresses encounters of performance, work, stage, studio, material and leftovers. It is an entanglement of materials (steel, image, text, sound, machines, tools, clothes, costumes) and actions, and their reciprocal intended and unintended affects.

Suspense (2016)

Mary Gallen-Kallela´s piano, rope, hooks, carabiners, lock, thimble

Read more...

The piece is a project for Gallen-Kallela Museum, Espoo, and Silent Space – Intensified Integrities exhibition. It made use of Mary Gallen-Kallela´s grand piano from the museum collection.
A rope is fixed around the piano lid holder. It then runs through hooks on the wall and on the ceiling and comes down. The end of the rope hangs loosely and drops to the viewer´s space, suggesting to pull – and the brake of silence.
