Helppox is a concept of a life management service. An system where individual would set parameters about their life choices and the system would guide them through their live following the rules they set themselves. The system for example would help you do your shopping based on your favorite foods and your settings for wanted nutrition levels etc. Everything would be dynamic, so when you want to have some beers at weekend, it would reduce your calorie intake on week days to keep the average on set level.
Helppox would also help manage your personal finance. System knows your income and normal spending profile and if you plan to buy something more expensive, it will give you options how to save the money or how using credit would affect your finances.
The concept of Helppox is quite wide and it would be possible to make it reality, but so far it only exists in my mind.
Hidden / Exposed is a project that is experimenting how Internet can on other hand bring a single image or text into the spotlight and gain huge publicity as on the other hand you can publish hundreds of hours of material that is available, but still not really exposed to public.
In this ongoing project Juha is placing himself as test-subject, exposing parts of his private life in to public, yet still remaining hidden. There is no turning back. When public wants to find the private information, they will – and then the public can not become private again.
One Way Ticket, or OWT is a project that started as as study of using a blog as a media for fictional work. Over the time the project transformed from blog posts into a collection of loosely connected irrational pieces of poetry to the point where in the end the author of the texts becomes unclear.
The transformation can be seen as a development of a condition, as well as a critic to the nature of Internet where amount of content is increasing and simultaneously the relation between elements becomes invisible.
Some content of the OWT-blog was later used in the book “Aphorisms from the edge of the walk-in closet”.
