Kanta|Väestö (Original Population)
2014
236 inkjet prints, frame
diptych
100 x 127.3 cm each

This diptych sculpture (total 236 individually cut out passport-photographs) respond to the idea behind the positivist use of photography in 19th century criminological and eugenic studies. The work is not intended to mimic the composite pictures (famously produced by Francis Galton), which were meant to create one portrait out of various superimposed images. Our sculptures, on the other hand, are formed out of endless small fragments and so borrow the appearance of Galton´s endeavor, while emphasizing the impossibility of it.

The full contents and beautiful feeling are both great aspects of this piece. But the unnatural style really differentiates this artwork from others.

Is a girl a part of work? It seems by taking a photo with a young viewer it becomes another piece.
