3 RGB color and ambient light sensors, light emitting wall (162 led light rails and 162 u-profile glasses)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.

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 was filmed during Simo Kellokumpu ´s Contextual Choreography: Hidden Madhouse process in Mad House Helsinki 2015 and was exhibited as a part of his artistic doctoral thesis exhibition Contextual Choreography, in Suvilahti, Maneesi, 25.-29.4.2016.Read more...
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.

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

The work was created for Valtio+ (State+) exhibition that took place in a former Turku County Prison in Kakolanmäki. The piece consists of two parts, a drawing that was placed inside a segregation cell and a sculpture that was cast outside on the yard. The drawing was depicting the ground plan of the same cell where it was hanged. The sculpture was a copy of the floor of same segregation cell. It was cast and tiled on place and included all the detailing of the original.
