Happy New Year! My work Déjà Vu has been published in EIGA Trend Diary “New Move”. For 8 years the EIGA design calendar has featured current design trends. Its 2014 edition is dedicated to the theme of motion and velocity. It portrays artistic as well as commercial designs dealing with abstract and concrete motion effects.
Kurt Weill´s and Bertolt Brecht´s Seven Deadly Sins was the result of a two-year project in Finnish Academy of Fine Arts. The aim of our experimental music theater was to examine how the roles of different forms of art could be renewed in opera production, and to have the emphasis on visual arts through the whole project development.
As a result of a competition in winter 2012-13, mine and Elina Vainio´s spatial concept was chosen, together with Monika Czyzyk´s and Diana Soria Hernandez´s directing idea, to be developed further with the whole group. The performance was designed for the huge 4500 square meters warehouse space in Jätkäsaari Bunker. We had there eight sold-out performances in September 2013.

Last saturday was the opening of Between the Bridges, the annual environmental art exhibition in Jämsä in Central Finland. Me, Urška Sršen and Matti Koskinen from Finnish Academy of Fine Arts were invited to make new works for the exhibition in city center.
For six months I gathered stories and memories from Jämsä citizens of all ages. The result from these stories donated for me is the Storymap of Jämsä. The exhibition is open every day until 2.9.2012.
[Note 15.11.2012. The exhibition time has been extended - Storymap will be on show through the whole winter and spring 2013.)
