<B>Belonging to generation</B> that comprehend the culture of consumerism, computer games/contemporary media, Sarajärvi is conscious of necessity of the critique of such a culture. His installations, presenting a "real virtual world" made of designed furniture, computer games, video and promotional graphic materials, provide environments for such critique.
<B>For Live Herring -05</B>, he is going to create a work which combines beforehand on site recorded scenic elements to real time video-stream based upon spectators interaction.
it is interesting to create a space, or should I say a condition, where the spectator can shift from one plane to another- from being a consumer to the spectator of art in the "white cube"- from infinitesimal consuming unit to a individual.
<B>Real-time video stream</B> can be viewed during the exhibition both in the exhibition grounds and projected to the window of Jyväskylä Art Museum in the centre of Jyväskylä.
