About

2003-2007 I studied contemporary art, at art school Maa in Helsinki, Finland.Three years including courses like, art history, conceptual art, video, sound, installation, and lectures by artists. Fourth year as individual project working with individual and group tutoring by a teacher. 1997-2003 I have been instructed by a professional sculptor in different stages of metal sculpting. 1996 I worked six months at Art center Ilja-West where was taught the basics of bronze casting and metal work.After the basic studies I made two years bronze pendants and paintings; but since year 2000sculpturing has been the most important media for me. First few years I made bronze sculptures based on intuition, eastern philosophy and popular culture. Studies at contemporary art school influenced me to new medias and to the views of present day art. I started to produce more conceptual works, adding them post modern phenomena andmixing plastic, toys, moulds, fluorescent paint and glitter with bronze sculptures. 2007 I made two Installations with readymade and moving objects, recycled plastic and welded metal sculptures, and a rotating sculpture with sound.Random doctors is a Helsinki-based VJ group which me and my friends founded 2004. Since then, Random doctors have actively been doing live visualizations for a variety of audio events and art projects. We started with Hippo complex and Stompin` feets clubs,which were, the only rephlex rec. based clubs in Finland. During the years 2006-2007, Random doctors participated electronic and new music festivals like Pixelache, Koneisto, UMF, Flow. From the beginning, our crew has been working in symbiosis with the visual art and live music association Vadelma (www.vadelma.org). Experimental music and other performative events were often held at Vadelma with random doctors visualizations.We create live mixed visual projections and installations from pre-edited and live visual materials for specific contexts. In live audio and club events, Random doctors vj`s collectively create narrative with cut and paste video screenings synchronized to the music,
