Alussa

Edition: 4 (scroll 350x7000mm, cylinder: 110x400mm)

The Alussa book was made in the Kultela brickworks in Finland. The scroll shows a series of rubbings of tracks made by sun (drying cracks) and culture (imprints of hands) on the work Aurinko Ja Maa (see Installations). The scroll is contained in a ceramic cylinder, similar to the old Greek and Roman Voluminae. These cylinders are products of the Kultela Ceramic factory. Wax pencil on Japanese paper.
