Artist’s Statement

I am a contemporary artist and an experimental filmmaker from Finland. The medias I mostly work with are moving image and sound. My works have been screened in various festivals, exhibitions and microcinemas since the year 2000. When working with moving images, I prefer analogue film, tough I am open to all materials. I collect images and sounds eagerly and also like to use "found footage” materials whenever possible. In addition, I produce the audio tracks for my films myself. Some important influences and reoccurring themes in my work are the history of avant-garde/experimental film, but also cultural history in general. When describing my work shortly I usually use terms such as landscape film, diary film or personal film.
