Holiday pictures from places that don´t exist (2022)
Artificial intelligence, multi-art
Materials: Polaroid-pictures, recycled memoryboard.
A journey to imaginary places around the world made together with artificial intelligence. The images have been made together with artificial intelligence and transferred from digital world to Polaroid-images by taking a photo of their reflections from the wall.

God Shaped Hole (2021)
Multi-art, artificial intelligence, audio, video
Materials: bronze casing, metal, PLA, wood, audiovisual technology
God Shaped Hole is a series of works that started in 2020. It is a process that lives and changes its shape constantly. The main theme of God Shaped Hole is artificial intelligence, history, present and future.

Qui comedunt pollutio [He jotka syövät saasteita] (2021)
Materials: Iron, bronze
The work consists of three 400mm x 1000mm x 3mm bronze and iron combination panels. The panels consist of smaller (about 100mm x 100mm) bronze and iron plates. The panels are built by welding together these self-cast bronze plates and iron plates. The plates are welded with a bronze alloy, in a way that leaves a unique mark on the joint. Together, these form a mosaic-like pattern on the panels.

Diminishing Returns (2019)
Autonomous kinetic video installation of motion and image memory
Multi-art/ kinetic installation / live video / XR
Materials: camera, projector, angle iron, led lamp, Arduino, electronics, fan
“Wall, camera, projector, light, pendulum. The shadow of the pendulum sweeps past the light-sensing sensor on the wall. The sensor switches on light on the wall. The shadow shifts, the light turns off. The camera shoots light, the image of the light is reflected on the light itself. The picture depicts itself, over and over again. The projection of the memory of the pendulum movement will remain on the wall for a long time after the movement has taken place, repeating and disappearing into infinity. The pendulum slows down. The sensor senses slow motion. The engine starts and the pendulum starts a new movement. The memory of the movement of the image is repeated again, always in a different variation.”
Diminishing Returns is a mixed / multi-art work / installation. It does not completely fit into the framework of any traditional video work or installation. It is at the same time an analog / physical world installation as a video work in the “picture world”
Diminishing Returns is also not a recording, but a video / image happens and is created “here and now”. In the space and moment the viewer perceives the work, the environment, the space, the viewer himself, can affect the work by standing in front of the wall of the work and end up momentarily as part of the work until the memory of the image is erased from the wall.
Diminishing Returns is always changing and never repeats the same thing twice. It lives its own life in space, time, variation, vibration and change.
*some assembly may be required (2018-2019)
Kinetic sound sculpture
Materials: metal, plexiglass, electronics, water, glass, pump, silicone, circuit board, graphics printing ink
*some assembly may be required is an analog synthesizer, a drum machine. In MUU Kaapeli Gallery *some assembly may be required, is presented in a form in which four electronic boards function as an analog drum machine (electric bass, snare drums, tom and sheet metal drums). The metal racks built next to them have four larger and two smaller “waterfalls” made of glass objects that act as a sequencer / sequencer of the drum machine, i.e. a drummer. Random timers are placed on the floor made of angle iron and plexiglass enclosures to control the amount of water pumped to the waterfalls. There are also “bare-built” amplifiers and speakers, power transformers and power distributors installed on the floor. In the middle of it all is the “brain” in the plexiglass and metal frame, which uses its four electrified sensors / sensors to monitor the flow and fall of water in glass objects. The changes (pulses) detected by the sensors command the connections of electrical relays connected to the brain. The relays release the flow / discharges of electricity to the four electronics boards, which means that the electrical circuits on the boards convert them through the amplifier into audible sound from the speakers.

Whispers of MurMur (2018)
Materials: board, metal, laser, water, mirror, speaker element, analog oscillator & discrete filter
The oscillator is powered by an electric current coming from the wall, which allows it to generate sound waves. As sound waves pass through the speaker, they form patterns in the water on top of it. The UV laser beam hits the surface of the water. There is a mirror under the surface, which vibrates according to the frequencies of the sound and reflects on the board on the wall the illustration of the sound waves. The surface of the painting has been treated with a varnish that absorbs UV light, which for a small moment shows the memory of the light. A pictorial echo of sound.
Noise to Signal (2017)
Kinetic sound sculpture
Materials: metal, wood, reindeer skin, salt, game electronics
A combination of a Finnish traditional instrument, a witch drum and a modern Japanese arcade game world.

Kannus 2.0 (2017)
Kinetic sound sculpture
Materials: metal, woos, reindeer skin, salt, recycled electronics, , graphics printing ink
The second version of Kannus’ (2015) series, Kannus 2.0 is an intermediate form between the new and the old. All the elements of an old traditional witch drum, from reindeer skin to the tree of life / Yggdrasil. Kannus 2.0 was a continuation of a wall-mounted electronic graphics board featuring Yggdrasil, which is at the same time a fully functional circuit board; full of electronics and electrical current, creating the foundation for the life of the oscillators and amplifiers that make Kannus work.

Polarized painting (2015)
Materials: wood, recycled electronics, glass
We humans often take light for granted. If there is light where we are, we expect it to give and reveal all information to us through our eyes. However, they omit most of the information.
Materials: metal, concrete, recycled materials, magnets, DC motor
13 rotating objects on 13 stands. One large, quiet, polarized rotating rod that forms a variation of the magnetic fields and rotates in correlation with them. The 12 smaller objects below it create a quiet but audible harmonic rustle.

X Y Z W (2014)
Materials: plexiglass, recycled materials
X Y Z W refers to the fourth dimension. In mathematics, the fourth dimension is an abstract concept. It has its roots in the three-dimensional space of Euclidean: length, width, and height. The fourth dimension is time. We can’t see the time. X Y Z W gives us an insight into how time can be made visible in a three-dimensional space – it is a cube, or more precisely it is an image of a hypercube, tessarakti. The endless reflection of light in all three dimensions.
