“Engineering Temporality” was the exhibition that caught our attention because of its fragility and beauty. When asked about his inspiration, Tuomas said it all started with his grandmother who sadly suffered from Alzheimer.

To create these unique pieces Markunpoika covered pieces of furniture with rings of steel in a way that they would look like a web. After he covered the pieces with the amount of steel rings he thought to be ideal he then destroyed the pieces by setting them on fire. This process allowed him to create these objects that seem like hazy weakened memories of the original pieces.
