Description
Dreams of something better We live in a crucial age. The conflict between the carrying capacity of nature and the use of natural resources required to maintain our way of life is untenable. We all know that something has to be done. But do money and material values have such a tight grip on humanity that we are unable to change? Grappling with the need for continuous economic growth, humanity is using nature to the utmost. We are exploiting nature unscrupulously. In the midst of nature, humanity selfishly wants to live in an environment defined by itself. In my point of view people are prisoners of an unnatural materialism, and contact with real nature is fast disappearing. What really is stopping us to change the direction? In my works I investigate the need for a redefinition of society and humanity. I try to think of a world where our relationship to nature would be more natural. In the words of the Finnish poet Pentti Saarikoski: “To see the world, one must first get rid of the worldview.” My works are poetic visions of the world, dreams of something better.
