The series on sun – June

The series on sun – June, is a publication part of a larger scope of projects from the artist, dealing with temporality, sunlight and collaborating with an inkjet printer. It consists of a poem written by Hikari Nishida and handwritten by Léa Girardot (type designer), an A4 image printed by Inkjet HP Deskjet 4120e, as well as visuals playing in the edge between abstraction and figuration:

«You are holding in your palms and between your fingers a narrative of the days passing by below the hurried sun of Helsinki. Carefully made to read and age, please, keep it dry and under direct sunlight.»

The publication was part of The Newspaper Vending Machine by Pbff (Photobooks from Finland) for URB22 festival (Kiasma Theatre) 7-8.6.33 and an installation work was exhibited at Kulma Pala 9-26.6.22.
