Edge Effects, Mustarinda Association, Hyrynsalmi, Finland

The installation carried on from an earlier work ’Tools of an imagined depression period buried in future’, from the same year. In a similar vein, the slightly elevated outlines under the grainy surface called forth speculations of the objects’ function and purpose and put under scrutiny their relationships to one another. The buried still life of the installation tapped into the always elusive, uncertain and unpredictable nature of the future by suggesting the digitally driven current conceptions might not take into consideration the continuous utility of the most basic of tools.
