Window In-between (2009-2018) is a photo essay to be shown in video format (63 min.) and collection of photograph works hanged on walls. The works visualize the relation between human and urban environment – and the human relation to the self – through a dialogue between inside and outside spaces. Existential identity contemplation and perception are present. Loneliness, isolation, the concept of home, advertising in public spaces and its juxtaposition with the present of a modern person in social medias are highlighted. The photo essay in video format is divided in four parts based on seasons. The narrative and autobiographical entity of photos, texts, and sounds are wandering and drifting in different directions as they will. The mind is an ever-changing window where the breeze blows both in and out. There is a glass-like surface between the inside and outside world, searching for its form. All the photographs of the whole are taken in Helsinki city.
Paperipeili (2016) is debut book which has selfknowledge and social dynamics as main themes. It touch on and unites various subthemes such as traveling, seasons, climate change, light, darkness, religion, love and death in an autobiographical way.

Sea divided and mountains splitted. Heart beat twice and life continued. Characters of scenes lived for the reflection – because of it – walked mirrors in their pockets. Sometimes views were divided into pieces and sometimes time stopped.
