Light Artist, Master of Arts, b.1979, Lives in Tampere, Finland

I often create my works by studying light in different spaces and materials. My practice is guided by an aspiration to understand the behavior of matter. Seeing light as matter is both a concrete and an interpretative part of the works. In my most recent light utilizing work “Connection” I've created constantly changing wall sceneries through the interplay of static wall mounted objects and moving colored light. In the works from the series “Entropy” I've painted copper with heat and flame. The gas fueled flame colors copper with the tones of blue, yellow and red: copper becomes touched by light. In other pieces I have also made use of different kinds of mirroring materials, acrylics and other light reflecting surfaces and contrasted them with black space which fades out the proportions of the surrounding space.
