By Any Means - New Finnish Sculpture, a book

What defines sculpture today, what will define it tomorrow? By Any Means presents the work of 20 young Finnish sculptors, all of whom have in their own way extended the concept of sculpture, including into areas that as yet are barely seen as fitting the definition.

In the interviews in this book the artists talk about how they solve problems related to their work. At the same time, they shed light on their own thinking, their sources of inspiration and their focuses of interest. Professor Jussi Pallasmaa’s essay profiles the life and art of Raimo Utriainen (1927–1994) – a major innovator in Finnish sculpture.

Artists: HC Berg (Hans-Christian Berg), Joakim Sederholm, Päivi Häkkinen, Vesa-Pekka Rannikko, Terhi Heino, Markus Kåhre, Hanna Vihriälä (Jaanisoo), Anssi Kasitonni, Petri Eskelinen, Tommi Toija, Antti Immonen, Oona Tikkaoja, IC-98 (Patrik Söderlund ja Visa Suonpää), Sari Palosaari, Emma Helle, Antti Oikarinen, Olli Keränen, Kalle Nio, Anna Rokka, Jenna Sutela.

Installing a new public work

This two-part work is called 'The Cave and The Find'. Together with Pasi Rauhala we did a permanent public work for the new school in city of Outokumpu. The work combines sculpture and video projection. It was a really interesting project and it was cool to catch some new technics from somebody working with a slightly different media. Here are some pictures from installing the work and testing the projection mappings etc. I'll post some official portfolio pictures later.

oh yes, we also installed these little pieces with triangle mirrors to get some sunlight at certain times of the day to shine some natural light.

I really like this one. It's never going to be shown like this, but we were just enjoying the view.
