Becoming PARAFERAL – Toronto 2014 – Niko Skorpio

One morning near Kensington Market, Toronto, May 2014. Thanks to a persisting jetlag I wake up early again, around 6am. My hosts are obviously sound asleep.

Vaihe 2 – Muutostiloja

VAIHE 2 – Muutostiloja käsittelee tiloja muutoksessa, muutosta tiloissa, muutoksen mahdollistamia tiloja ja tiloja jotka saavat aikaan muutoksia – sekä kirjaimellisesti että kuvaannollisesti ymmärrettynä. Keskeisenä tematiikkana ja tarkastelun aiheena on muutostilat osana taiteilijan työprosessia…

Missed-en-Abîme – Premiere Approaching

Rogério Nuno Costa - MISSED-EN-ABÎME

Earlier this year, I was invited by Rogério Nuno Costa to collaborate on his experimental performance project Missed-en-Abîme. Having mutual history in Aalto University and all that, I was happy to work with Rogério again. After some months of intense research and hard work, the results are about to be revealed. The premiere is set for 12 September, at Serralves Contemporary Art Museum in Porto, Portugal. My contribution is the sound art for the performance.
