" I have born in 1986 in Estonia and lived all my conscious life in free Europe. I have never been hungry or thirsty, known fear of violence. I have always had a home and people who care about me. I have never been alone, I have lived in a safe world.
Every morning I read world news to find out what is happening. There are a lot different news channels and information sources. It is difficult to see the difference between real and virtual life. The constant flow of information creates a black hole and it is impossible to know what is reality, film, a joke or tragedy…"
Documentation for a fictional provoking story about unknown figure invading my personal space.
I had a feeling someone was following me on my daily run. So I decided to catch them in act wearing my portable sports-camera. I saw a girl passing me. I saw her again in a little while, then again and again. Then I realised, the girl was me...
Video conversation between me and my mother. My mother, also an art critic and journalist is asking me questions regarding my future plans as an artist: What will you do now when you have graduated from art college? Do you think a Bachelor degree is enough? What do you consider your role to be as an artist? What do you want to accomplish as an artist? etc.
I am cutting onions, crying (caused by onions) and answer I don' t know, I don't know... to every question becoming more hysterical with each answer.
Comic book about a conspiracy theory of Japan's radiation crises.
Tsunami that hit Japan was simulated by world leading corporations to create radiation leaks that would cause a generation of mutants to be born. Eight handed mutants became a new cheap labor, who could work faster and more effective thanks to extra hands.
Time is passing non-stop, and we follow it with clocks and calendars. Yet we cannot study it with a microscope or experiment with it. And it still keeps passing. We just cannot say what exactly happens when time passes.Physical time is public time, the time that clocks are designed to measure. Psychological time is private time. It is perhaps best understood as awareness of physical time. Psychological time passes relatively swiftly for us while we are enjoying an activity, but it slows dramatically if we are waiting anxiously for the water to boil on the stove. The slowness is probably due to focusing our attention on short intervals of physical time. Meanwhile, the clock by the stove is measuring physical time and is not affected by anybody's awareness.
"Seize the time" clock is made as a present to my mother who never has enough time. By spinning the wheel of this clock it's possible to change the time to suit the user.
Complete inventory of all the things at my home. Inventory is shown on an apartment plan. While doing inventory I released I have a red box, where I collect things that I don't need, but also do not want to throw away. This red box has become a filter between something useful and rubbish. I photographed all things in it. While exhibiting I asked visitors to give me advice what should I do with these things.
I asked 25 people to think about someone they once knew well but have since lost contact, I also asked them a reason why. Using each persons silhouette I created 25 post cards with their lost persons name and the reason of loosing contact.When this process was complete each post card was sent to random addresses, kindly asking recipient to forward it their lost person.

Dearist Diary!I want to be as everybody else. Nothing goes right for me. I want, that something goes right for me as well. One time my headphones are broken and I'm not allowed to play ball. Everything is bad.
Dear Diary!Today I am in Swedish Royal Library and I am thinking, that I am going swimming tomorrow. But I can't swim. I will go swimming anyway.
Dear Diary!Why is everything so bad? Why am I so bad? Why, dear Diary, why am I so bad? Please, Diary, why don't you reply?
The Sculptor's House in Tallinn has been a home for artists' studios from year 1976. Sculpture department of Estonian Academy of Arts has been there for 20 years. Due to the fact that it's out of the City Centre people have an opinion that it's a dark and cold building with nobody in it. We as second year sculpture students saw that the house is full of interesting things and people. The aim of the exhibition was to announce others about Sculptor's House and contemporary sculpture generally. All materials used in exhibition were found-objects from this building.
Installation of plaster heads found from Sculptor's House. Some of them forgotten, some left behind. With an act of exhibiting them in a old-style cabinet we valued them again.
The birds were talking with voices of three sculptors who have a studio in Sculptor's House. They were remembering the time before and wondering about the future of the building.
Installation that is built to create the atmosphere used in classical painting to picture Venus. Visitors could lay on the stage and photograph themselves as Venus.
Three artist's talks organized within program 52 ideas and surprises to promote contemporary sculpture.
We chose nine contemporary Estonian sculptures and made models of food based on them, then asked the artist to come and talk about their work. While the artist were introducing their work the food-models were eaten.
Food and eating together created a familiar and friendly atmosphere between people visiting and the artists talking.
