In Light of Current Events (6/2018)

Rgb color and ambient light sensor, illumination wall (162 led light rails and 162 u-profile glasses)


A color and light sensor is placed on top of the hospital building. It detects the incoming light from a point in the sky, its intensity and its color in RGB color space. 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 information that was saved during the day. The real time information illuminates the whole 135 m2 area around the auditorium, whereas only singular canals are illuminated at night time, switching places as the color data changes.

The illumination wall, with 162 sandblasted u-profile glasses and 162 led light rails, runs around the curved auditorium, facing toward the foyer space. The auditorium volume is enveloped with semitransparent glass facade and situated above the main entrance of the hospital. Therefor the art work impacts also the outside surrounding.

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.

Curator Lotta Mossum, commissioner Eva Rosengren / Uppsala Region.

Winner of invitational competition.

Finalizing time June / 2018.

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.


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.
