Polku

Polku. 2012

Polku, which means path in Finnish, is based on an exploration of the natural environment around Rovaniemi, in Northern Finland. Through photography, I intend to recreate the personal and imaginary landscape experienced during these excursions, which range from enlightening moments, to more confusing and frustrating ones. Natural materials are also collected during these walks and used in sculptures, which contribute to express the feeling of longing for finding my own way – maybe possible using these shoes made out of bark and pine cone scales, fit to my size.
