I AM #1, 2006

The project I am began with a fascination for growth and change. I did it with the pupils of one class in the city of Tampere during the period 2001–2009. The project yielded two installations of numerous parts, layered portraits and an artwork in neon light. The overall subject is the person’s being and identity.

The first large installation, I am #1 was completed in 2006.
I photographed the inscrutable quiet and light reflected from the faces of children on the threshold of adolescence. To each of the twin portraits I added in each child’s handwriting the words I am.
Through the work wish to convey the feeling of how, deep down inside we are all one
– the sensation that I am you!
