So many of us feel cut off, struggling to find a sense of belonging and carry on meaningful, rewarding lives in an increasingly post-institutionalized world.

This disconnection is both intimidating and fascinating at once.

Reasoned down to bare bones, very little if anything has any innate, objective significance. Human cultures are just superstructures built on top of biology, consisting of our acts of evaluation layered on top of one another through time. 

On a spiritual level, by embracing this fundamental, existential idea that we and only we decide what's valuable for us we can control our own biases and breathe significance into whatever surrounds us, turning the seemingly mundane into ritualistic tools as parts of and in service of a fulfilling existence.

The works on display are a part of an installation dealing with the theme of assignment of significance. The installation was exhibited in the Spring of 2018 in Helsinki.
