A Shared World

Artworks in the show Shared World tells stories from our small world´s point of view in the galactic scale.

In his oeuvre Janne Hokkanen handles the whole biosphere of our globe, which he mirrors through evolution of species through millions of years. With his art he wants to remind us how special it is to be alive and that we are all responcible of life on earth. Our endless need of resources affects nature´s ecosystems.
