Blom Risto-Pekka

The video work combines distressed and contented sounds of a baby with images of adult men and women acting out the sounds and the feelings that they convey. The work deals in a humorous way with our innate need to feel accepted, loved and happy.

Risto-Pekka Blom

Born: 1970

Risto-Pekka Blom graduated from technical education but never felt motivated to pursue a career as technician. For a few years he was looking for his purpose in life, until in the age of 27 he started a short course of Audiovisual Media and Expression, after which he graduated from Tampere Polytechnic School of Art and Media in 2005. Since then Blom’s video art and experimental short films have been exhibited in festivals and events in over twenty countries. His film Theme Park (2015) has won the Main Prize at Tampere Film Festival and Helsinki Short Film Festival in 2015.
