Satu-Minna Suorajärvi: The Loss of Small Details

The starting point for the exhibition was the 3D scanning of a 100-year-old house. The rooms and items were only partially recorded, leaving the 3D models full of holes. Still, it felt that fragmented 3D models were a great offset for my pieces. The errors produced by new technology act as a metaphor for the fragility and transience of life and memories. The object is displayed as a shape and an image from various angles in a manner similar to Cubism.

Suorajärvi is a Helsinki-based sculptor who graduated with a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in 2008. For a long time, she has based her work on the presentation of time and movement in sculptures, as well as various themes concerning the impermanence of life. Her latest pieces feature various digital techniques.
