Glass object (fusing, cold working) lenticular print of the same object
small glass object 7,5 x 5 x 3,5 cm; lenticular print 94 x 73 cm
These works hide and conceal, but mainly themselves. While they are eye-catching and purposefully beautiful, they are not easily grasped. As the viewer moves in space and time, the pieces, too, change in an instant. Here, glass attaches the world to itself but fragments the surroundings and flings out new reflections and shapes – it is the dynamic nature of beauty that makes it so captivating. There is no hierarchy between big and small, detail and whole – a fragment can become a whole world and the whole world can appear in a shimmer of light, both equally deserving attention.

Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
