In My personal Nature Lab, I am contemplating the changes occurring in our environment, natures ability to adapt and change. In one way I see humans as a part of organic nature, on the other hand I see humans as having a tendency to endeavour to control and classify observations.
To create the nature laboratory, I made experiments through the study of nature with the aid of fantasy, photography and video. Nature that originates from Finland can at the laboratory be seen from a different perspective, sometimes as bizarre.
If the climate warms quickly many species will have difficulty in adjusting to the rapid change. New species that can thrive in the changed circumstances will have to be born. This is how I became to the idea of making plant and animal hybrids who can survive in tough climate circumtances. These hybrids I created are pure fantasy and exists only in our imagination.
