Artist Statement

As an artist working in new media, including artificial intelligence and augmented reality, as well as installation art, photography, moving image, and textile, my primary focus is on conveying emotion through my work. I am constantly exploring the potential of AI and AR in my practice, and am interested in virtual spaces, new experiments, the interface between mediums, and finding new places and platforms to experience and exhibit art.

I bring an experimental approach to traditional handicraft, constantly seeking new ways and materials to merge old textile techniques with contemporary art. In my installations, I explore the relationship between large and small-scale space and incorporate moving image and sound art. My photography features miniature scenes that are transformed through long exposure and light techniques into surreal, emotional fantasy images.

The physical act of creating art is important to me, and I find joy in exploring the intersections of traditional craft techniques and contemporary art through my work. I received my MFA from the Department of Time and Space at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2017 and currently live and work in Helsinki, Finland.
