Saturday Statues – Sea Lives

Remember when I went to the contemporary art museum Kiasma in Helsinki? And remember that gorgeously colorful art by Korean Choi Jeong Hwa? Well, this week his marine inspired work – Sea Lives – was out there for all to see at Helsinki’s Senate Square.

Wow what a whirlwind week it has been! Grab a coffee and some chocolate chip cookies. Please don’t mind the boxes and huge moving mess all around. Hopefully I will soon get rid of some of our furniture and have space to stack the boxes on the side and make it all more presentable.

If we were having coffee, I would ask you to meet me at a café as our apartment is such a mess after what I call pre-move cleaning. There’s all kinds of unwanted stuff in our living room which someone (me?) should take out to charity, etc. – you don’t want to see it, believe me!
