In kinetic installation Phaser two room-size vinyl mesh fabrics are hanging next to each others, and programmed devices slowly push the fabrics closer together. The movement of the viewer and the pushing devices create constantly changing moire patterns, that effect viewers´ perception of the distance of the fabrics.
In another room I present sculptures that I made, or started to make, during my residency in Villa Lante, Rome last autumn.
The exhibition Phaser (Vaiheinen in Finnish) at Gallery Lapinlahti, a former mental hospital in Helsinki, is open until 11.3.2018, tue-fri 12-18 and sat-sun 12-17.
