Kalle Heikkilä. Body piece: Unself-portrait, 2018. Textile, wood, aluminium, copper, plastic, bone, leather, paint, thread, wire, etc.. 80 x 80 x 120 cm. In my thesis, I address the theme of personal identity, its fragility and transformations, the theme of being lost and endless journey of self-discovery. Unself-portrait formed into a wearable chaos and a huge piece of jewelry that covers the whole human body. It is an intuitively constructed experimental collage of little bit of everything..

Hanna Kostiainen. Installation: Ansari, 2018. Wood, rug yarn.. 130 x 130 x 317 cm. Photo by: Hanna Kostiainen. My final work Ansari is an interactive body-related installation. The goal was to create an art experience that discusses about the feelings and bodily reactions that a person feels during anxiety or a panic attack.
. First-hand experiences of these attacks were gathered through several interviews. The main materials of the installation are wood and rug yarn. The installation consists of techniques of sculpture and jewellery art; the installation contains some wearable pieces. These little anxieties can be worn. They tangle to the body like anxiety, always somewhere near you and you can't just easily take them away.

Reeta Suvanto. Installation: Hidden in the Memory, 2018. Red thread, plaster.. Photo by: Reeta Suvanto. The main theme in the graduation work was Eastern-Karelian culture, immigration and memories. What people hide and what they reveal about their cultural background? What people take with them when they have to leave their homes? The result was an installation of 16 plaster cases. Inside the case is space which represents the memories of the objects that left the space in the plaster. Some cases are open, some of them are closed and some no one can open because the red thread protects the inside. . Reeta Suvanto
