Public interactivity is an integral part of  my artistic work. Most often my  site- and time -specific interventions in public space take the shape of installations, performances or happenings involving the audience and co-operating  with other disciplines. I use statemential design, social or spatial sensation as my starting point to create situations, in other words,  encounters with public life. 
My artistic  work draws from the traditions of Conceptual Art and Situationism. It operates in and between the fieds of art, architecture and design.The underlying themes I engage often communicate ecological issues, consumerism and equality between species, genders, generations. In other words  ”Feminine Modernism; cleaning, caring and curing”.
I studied design at the Gerit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. I have realized public happenings and site specific installations in and outside Finalnd e.g Light Gym, Boudoir de Paris, Marry Me? Site Specific  or Silence! 
As the biggest influencers of my artistic work, I could mention Marina Abramovic, Vuokko Nurmesniemi, Donald Judd,  Tadao Ando, Gordon Matta-Clark, Gijs Ockeloen, Pentti Linkola, Annie Leonard, Timothy Morton, Jane Jacobs, Taina Rajanti and Banksy.
