Kaiken osana is a continuation of the work In Dependent Structures from 2012, but this time recorded in Finnish. In this new version the installation has received a sculptural appearance, as a freestanding structure which the viewers may enter one at a time. Because of its glass wall and the programmed lighting, that fades out when the work is listened to, the structure shifts between being slightly transparent to completely opaque. This breathing interplay is referred to in the sript that can be listened to inside the structure, but in the text the focus lies in our own bodies and how their porous qualities connect us to our surrouding and shape us as humans.
