The premise of the work was to observe at my immediate surroundings from a new perspective; to truly look at what seemed to be mundane. I aimed to give weight to the seemingly meaningless, isolate the obvious and raise it to a pedestal. My approach is a poetic one with intent to produce distortions of the obvious. I wanted to turn the ordinary into a small spectacles.
The images are isolated abstractions, modified interpretations, bare structures with only the essentials left. I wanted the images to suggest endless possibilities, to distance themselves from the physical location, to become a monument to something that is not really there. Even though the objects are individual at the same time they represent the city as a whole.
All the images were taken in Helsinki, Finland during 2014 and 2015.
