Feelings of fingers
Touching series, 2020
Unfired domestic clay. 

Feelings of fingers is a praise of touch. In the midst of the pandemic it became clear how important touch is for the individual as well as for the society at large. The building block of the sculpture is a cone formed by pressing clay again and again against the index finger.

Located at Kulosaaren puistotie in Helsinki on a public space between the cycleway and the sound barrier to the metro. Subject to conditions, the unfired clay withered, slowly turning into ruins and eventually back to earth.

This series was initiated during the Kone Foundation Home residency.
