Huhtamo Kari - Teräskonstruktio (1986)

In this piece, Huhtamo has structured space with light incisions. The starting point of the piece are thin, steel lines. The steel pipe draws a shape, enclosing a piece of space within it. The essence of the sculpture resembles the abstractness and intangibility created by lines drawn on paper.

The sense of physical weight in the piece is so small that it is unable to create the feeling of motion and remains stationary. The feeling of permanence in space is also supported by the sphere inside the sculpture, which is not connected to the curves of the contours and thus does not create motion, as is the case with the monument to the rebuilding of Lapland. Rather, the sphere inside the piece stops any efforts at motion perfectly.
