Quantity + one more
Take a walk on the pier. (scroll down to read what the pier is about)
This pier is a montage of pictures.
In real life there is a certain number of boards in that pier.
In this digital assemblage there would be infinite possibility to
add always one more.
This pier is picturing my research
of repetition, variating, copying and multiplying.
Armi Nurminen (s.1981) is currently located in Espoo, Finland. She moved there for the master of arts studies in Aalto University. She has enjoyed the multisensory, close to the nature feeling of Espoo. To have a natural environment, sea and forest, is very crucial for her. She has been working as a sculptor with interest to site, either wilderness or urban. Her best known works are underwater sculpture Kalakoto (Fishnest), installed as part of Contemporary Art Archipelago (CAA) in year 2011 and Hjärtats saga (Heart’s story), memorial of national poet J.L. Runeberg and his wife Fredriga Tengström, mounted in Parainen, Finland, 2015.
Cells grow and multiply, grow and multiply. 3,8 million cells are reproduced in the human body every second. That I would call a serious mass production! Wholeness and final escapes just when we think we are getting a grasp. As a child we start to hear stories and we start to relive the stories and we want to hear them all over and over again. As we grow up our mind consists of stories that we have heard and experienced. Those stories are always fragments of the whole and never the exact truth. If wholeness and truth even exist. Never chase the original or the unique. Unique pretends to be something that it is not. World is a fluid theater play. Play of repetition, copying, multiplying. Play of reforming, transforming, variating, differentiating. Play of reproducing and mass producing. Scene is infinity.
