“Often working outside, I seek to find ways of collaborating with the weather, insects, plants and found outdated light-sensitive materials. The residency is giving me the opportunity to test my ideas and to stage experiments. I am using the residency as well to collect different materials and samples of rocks, plants, soil etc. to be further used in studies and experiments for my laboratory work in Helsinki.”
