I create most of my exhibitions as immersive installations, where children and adults can experience art in different ways: looking at it, listening to it, touching it, climbing on it - in short, living in it and playing with it. My projects function almost like a theatre, with visitors as audience and actors simultaneously. Several installations have been commisioned by museums, but most of them are property of the artist, often go on tour and are shown several times in Finland and abroad. Many ready projects are available for display.
