Jaakko Pernu is doing land art. His sculptures are large scale and made of organic material which are very suitable, beautiful and economic for him and his way to work. His site specific art works are usually playing with some contradictions or anti-thesis such as: light combined with large, external basic form combined with internal coincidental material, transparent lucid form combined with solid structure, irony/humour combined with fine art or intuition with refined hand work. With his art he explores the influence of human on nature – the influence of nature on humans.
About the project:
[It] is a canopy of three interlocking trees creating a dome. It signifies the circle of life and testifies the oath to conserve and protect the environment while having progressive development in the City. The 6.5 meter (21 feet) tall sculpture is made of stainless steel representing stability and durability.
