Cascade at Caisa

The On the Waves exhibition combines a kinetic installation based on wave motion by Pia Männikkö with photos from the shores of Helsinki by Jaana Kaipiainen.

My work Cascade is built of wood, cotton straps, hinges and solenoides. The large-scale installation studies the laws of physics, making the propagation of wave motion visible.

Exhibition is open 7.8.- 29.8.2020 in Caisa Galleria, Kaikukatu 4, Helsinki. Free entry.
