Target of Cutting (Leikkauksen Kohteena)

Finland has suffered from economic crisis for the past few years. People who operate in the cultural field have been forced to face aggressive cutbacks and lay offs. These are often explained as part of “a necessary saving operation”.

The company owning our school decided to terminate the fine arts study program in Tampere university of applied sciences immediately as I got in.

This interactive installation gives an opportunity to experience how it feels to be a target of a cutting and what kind of thoughts and emotions the situation may trigger.
