My Furry Animal Installation in the Middle of Helsinki

Wow, it’s been quite quiet on this front recently. I blame my new day job. I work at Rovio now, as a senior graphic designer. Have been for four months now.

Recently I’ve been involved with Napa Illustrations agency’s book Yellow City – Illustrated Stories from Helsinki. In the book the agency’s illustrations illustrate stories from Helsinki, written by Finnish authors. My story’s author was Maria Candia, a science fiction writer extraordinaire.

In the story Maria wrote there’s an alternative universe in which Kamppi shopping center doesn’t exist. Instead there’s a huge pit in the ground in where Köpöttis, these strange furry creatures, live.

Now the story comes to life. My installation is now in Kamppi shopping center. As you can see from the pictures the big boys are made from cardboard and tulle. Whole lot of stapling and voila, the installation is ready.

Well, not quite. It took so much time I couldn’t even imagine half of it. There was usually 3 people working on it, for 2-3 weeks mostly in the evening time, after day jobs. The gluing of the balls alone took quite a lot of time since every ball is made of ten long pieces that had to be glue together.

Luckily there was a lot of capable people working on the thingies from start to finish. I couldn’t have pulled this one off on my own. So, big, big thank you to Johanna, Marjo, Iiro, Maiju, Mia.

The Köpötti’s, as they are called in the short story, are now in Kamppi. Go check them out if you’re around. Kamppi representatives said they are the first ever art installation in Kamppi shopping center. I’m quite proud of that!
