Oxytocin

Oxytocin is a  peptide hormone and neuropeptide. It is produced in the hypothalamus and released by the posterior pituitary. It plays a role in social bonding, sexual reproduction, childbirth, and the period after childbirth.

I was one of the 27 artists taking part in the TypoCraft Helsinki exhibition, which took place at Lokal Gallery and a temporary satellite exhibition at Erottaja 2 in Helsinki.

The theme of the event was “Kauno”, or “Joint Writing”. Participating artists were asked to design artworks or products that take “Kauno” as their starting point.

The curators of TypoCraftHelsinki are gallerist Katja Hagelstam and graphic designers/ADs Ilona Ilottu, Ilkka Kärkkäinen and Tuija Tarkiainen.
