What moves me right now is on display in the study window.
The study window is an open window into my study, an entity that is being updated like a work diary. I higlight, lift to the table topics, themes, plans and projects that move me just now.
Just as the corona period brought changes to the lives of so many people, professionals in different fields, I also experienced a kind of standstill moment when all the guidance work was on hiatus. I took it as an opportunity to look at my own work in peace and assess the need for changes.
During my career, I have never been able to focus and deepen my skills within one specific medium, but I have ventured into very different materials, techniques and means of expression. As always with phenomena and things, this too has both good and bad sides. When I don't delve deeper, I don't achieve skill, but at the same time I experience the buzz of curiosity and feelings of amazement at the edge of something new. I would like to do everything, but human limits come up, there is not enough time and you have to make choices.
During Corona, I deepened my understanding and my skills with my beloved hobby, knitting. Up until now, I have mostly knitted from other designers' models for my own needs, but now I got excited both to make knits for others and to design prints and patterns myself. In the same way as in everything else I do, I applied and combined things to achieve what I want. It doesn't always work out within the rules and guidelines, but if the end result is what I want, stretching the boundaries is not a problem.
My goal was to make a unique wearable, abstract knitted sculpture/painting/drawing. The starting point for the picture subject can be a detail directly from nature, or it can be my own drawing from which I enter the photo I take into the program, where I can finish the picture into a knitting pattern.

"Return home with the scull". Tomorrow will be the premiere of Baba Yaga - Shameless!. Composed by Tellu Turkka for the choir Sisaruet. The glowing masks and small bird sculptures are my piece of work. Pic Tellu Turkka.
I brought my last summer’s video workshop exercises to the desktop, as my plans are to start videotaping the autumn break. These exercises serve as a reminder - of course, of summer, but even more so of the laws of video work.
Autumn workshop chores. Small, wise birds suitable for hand and pocket to secure Malina in the forest of Baba Yaga. And cow's femurs to give a boost fot the dance.
I found a dragon fly metamorphosis, or what was left of it. It is like a dress, a gown with it's strings opened. Collecting these for future use.
