This version of Kaiken osana is a sound installation for a sing created for the Saastamoinen Foundation collection in EMMA in 2019, the installation was recorded in Finnish and has a sculptural appearance as a freestanding structure which the viewers may enter inside.

Through programmed lighting activated by the entering viewer, the window transitions from slight transparency to complete opacity. This rhythmic interplay is echoed in the short narrative that can be heard inside the space from headphones. Delving into our corporeal essence, emphasizing our porous nature and interconnection that shapes us as humans.
