Gorgeous series by Helsinki-based artist Maija Savolainen. “Paperworks (See/Sea)” is made up of sheets of folded (white A4) paper, placed in direct sunlight and photographed at different times of the day/year. A study on photographic ways of seeing, the final result looks like a horizon line when seen from afar and a folded piece of paper upon closer inspection. More images below.
Works by Helsinki-based designer and illustrator Linda Linko. Her designs are mostly handmade, avoiding the use of any computer programs until the final stages of each work.
“I like incompleteness. If everything’s polished to perfection, where’s the space for imagination?”
Lots more work below.
Finnish skateboarder turned photographer Arto Saari hosted a pretty unique invitational recently, giving skaters the opportunity to session Helsinki Airport. The video is definitely a promotion for the airport and airline involved, and they probably should have cut out 90% of the voiceover, but it’s still pretty cool. Somehow I don’t see this happening in any American airport any time soon.

This photo by Maija Luttonen made me laugh. Maija is living and working in Helsinki and has a unique portfolio in that there is as much drawing as there is photography (I haven’t come across this combination too often). I particularlly like this little series of photos, Please let’s pretend.
