In the artworks titled Väki, I employed the same method I developed for my robot sculptures, establishing a continuation between them. Their forms were entirely taken from everyday objects. Banal objects, I might say. I created separate plaster molds from items like IKEA shot glasses, food packaging, vacuum cleaner hoses, or pens. I aimed to select objects whose shapes were familiar from industry and primarily functional. Mundane forms, typically considered dull, underwent a metamorphosis when cast or pressed into clay and assembled into bodies, robots.

While the robots exclusively utilized industrial shapes, the Väki figures also include freely sculpted facial features, leading them through an evolution from robots to animals and mystical beings.
