DECEDENTS / EDESMENNEET, 2012
A series of eight letter pressed papers (ed. 1/1), 38 x 56 cm
 
The words pressed onto sheets of paper were collected from Finnish newspaper obituaries from the 1940’s and ranged from obsolete professional titles such as ‘moottorimies’ (motor man) or ‘talonomistaja’ (owner of a house) to honorific titles like ‘neiti’ (miss).
