Oletko asettanut itsellesi sääntöjä, jotka mahdollisesti rajoittavat elämääsi? Usein ihmisen ja onnellisuuden välissä on vain ihminen itse. Onnellisuuskioskilla voit irrottautua rajoitteista ja aloittaa uuden, onnellisemman elämän. Tule ja vapaudu!
Series of photographs (2013-)
Ongoing project, current count 9 images
Pigment print, 200cm x 100cm each
In this series, I photographed the screen of my laptop, focusing on images my onlines friends had posted as their profile pictures in social networks. None of the images portray the actual persons but some public figures instead. Magnified, the images begin to lose facial characteristics and become vast fields of red, green and blue dots.
The ways we build our online profiles reflects back on how we perceive ourselves. Likewise, the ways we communicate with other people shapes our thinking. What will we become in the world dominated by social networks and mobile communication?
3rd Mind (for Bill & Brion) combines combines experimental, fictional and documentary material. Whenever two creative minds congregate, a third mind emerges – a synergetic force that guides the collaboration of the two. Opposites complement each other.
Inspired by Brion Gysin & William S. Burroughs, this video is a personal homage to them and a kind of response to their film collaborations with Antony Balch.
“The third mind is there when two minds collaborate.” (WSB)
Time to put an end to all endings, and focus on NEW BEGINNINGS. Enjoy yourselves and step forward, the future awaits, eager and open wide!
Here’s some disco music for machine elves, in case you encounter some on the way to yourself.

RE_V — the fifth video for the RE Project, by Niko Skorpio
RE is a multi-narrative collaboration project; it is based around the idea of story telling with the use of symbols (characters, scenarios, etc…). These symbols are meant to be very open to different interpretations so that the artists are able to create or change the meaning of these symbols in a way that is open and as uncontrolled as possible.
The only requisite is to use video. Regarding everything else, the artist is given complete and utter freedom to continue with the story however they want, so the use of imagery, continuation of the story, addition of new characters, reference of past scenes, creation of new situations/conflicts, etc… are totally up to the artist.
Current artists that are part of RE:
Niina Kiiveri, Eve Heino, Anu Mustonen, Laura Lehtinen, Niko Skorpio, Riikka Enne, Jung A Kim, Soo Hyun Kwon, Pat Navarro, Jessica Maltais, and Gabriel Gutierrez.
This includes most of the releases from the last 15+ years. I’ve added some bonus tracks wherever available. Some stuff is not up yet, but missing links will surface once we have the time… same goes for selected other projects I am or have been involved in.
What’s more, brand new sounds are on the way, admittedly slowly but rather surely.
