Sculptor working with digital fabrication using 3D modeling, 3D printing and laser cutting.

During my sculpture studies at the Academy of Fine Arts I became enthusiastic about 3D modeling. I felt that I could renew old traditions of sculpture by digital fabrication. After graduating as MFA I started making sculptures by 3D printing because I was able to compose forms that were unmakeable by my hands. 

Ideas for my sculptures come from everyday life. I draw human silhouettes and 3D model them to sculptures. That produces surprising forms which reminds me of human condition. 


Currently I am concentrating to parametric 3D modeling. This year I made The Skydiving public sculptures to the new Växjö City Hall and Central Station. I am currently making The Posaune public sculpture to Tuusula municipality.
