Selection of works:

I am thinking about the present-day Western people and their connection with nature. How natural the contact is? Is it  romanticized, magical, run by economical efficiency or totally gone? Are we still part of the nature? And what is the relationship between spirituality and nature contact?
We have always been dependent on nature that is providing us the essentials of life. But is the aim for a never-ending growth and progress made us think everything here is only for us?
The main material is plywood combined it with recycled rubber. An old inner tube of tractor or bicycle, even it may be a bit old-fashioned as an object, tells about our culture and our creative ability to utilize our surrounding. The material is protective, elastic and doesn’t decay really. Even there may be a hint of natural rubber in the mixture in the idea level it reminds many people about oil.
