Kinetic sculptures

Visiting Jessica MacMillan studio in the Artists' House. American multidisciplinary artist MacMillan creates sculptures and installations within astronomy and their relationship to the actuality of daily life on our planet. She explains to visitors her visions of this installation that in astronomy, reality and appearance are more disconnected than in any other area of human experience. The kinetic sculptures of household objects are aligned with the axis of the planet and mounted the same that are used for guiding telescopes.

Classic Danish interiors

One of the very successful concepts by Helsinki Design Week is the Design Diplomacy discussion series. Helsinki-based ambassadors residences open their doors to the public and registered participants gain the unique opportunity to explore the interior and architecture of the apartments. In addition, the events invite to a ludic Q&A card game session with a designer from each country meeting a corresponding Finnish design professional. This image is taken in the Danish residence in one of the many cosy meeting rooms fitted with classic Danish interiors.
