is a Finnish artist working in the fields of both visual and performing/live art. Her works include for example installations, sculpture, performances and their visualizations, and combinations of different art fields. She lives and works in Helsinki. “I am particularly interested in the time and space related dimensions of being and existence – how we exist in time, space and place, how we perceive our environment, what makes up the spaces of reality? I work with many kinds of media since instead of a specific work method or material I emphasize the idea of a piece. Thus the materials for a work are chosen according to the subject I am addressing, and may vary from the human body to light and moving image. In size most of my works are rather big; spaces and situations where the physical presence and movement of the viewer become included in the work. In my art I observe perception and the hidden mechanisms of the mind: the confines of memory, identifiability and the limitations of the individual worldview in relation to them. I am interested in the concepts according to which each of us create our own personal interpretation of the surroundings and environments that are considered common to us all.” http://www.sallasalin.com/
