Kaiken osana is a continuation of the work In Dependent Structures that was first made in 2012 in Westspace, Melbourne. In this version, created for the Saastamoinen Foundation collection in EMMA, the installation was recorded in Finnish and it has also received a sculptural appearance as a freestanding structure which the viewers may enter inside.

Due to the programmed lighting that fades out when the work is activated by a spectator, the glass window changes from being slightly transparent to completely opaque. This breathing interplay is referred to in the text that can be listened to inside, 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.

Photographs: Ella Tommila (first three), Ville Vauras (two bottom ones)
