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.

Model of a Tunnel in a hole in the window

It was quite fun to install my work 'Model of a Tunnel' to a little window gallery Reikä -gallery in Helsinki. The idea of the gallery is that you can only look inside from the hole in the window. You can not enter the gallery space. It was also interesting to see how the light of the day interfered with the light of the installation. At the daylight you cold only see the tunnel and after sunset you could see to the inside of the room with the moving shadows of the work.
