Bio    Artist’s Statement 

Occurrence taking place somewhere or human behaviour connected to certain space is often starting points for the works. The media used varies between sound, objects, photographs and drawings.
Recent works have been sound performances and installations searching for alternative ways to reproduce sound and in this way listen to the space.

The soundshell plays sounds referring to the lighting of its surroundings which is measured by photoresistor built inside.
Bright light, diminishing light, darkness and  growing light are expressed in poetry recitals and songs, playing the actual sound of the light source (for example  the sound of the fluorescent light tube), as references  made to the hours of the day in literature and playing the effect of a certain lighting situation (for example cry in the darkness).
