“For whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.”
Pekka Sassi (b. 1969) is a Helsinki-based artist whose output consists of experimental sound and video works, many of which are purely sound pieces and audio installations. Sassi’s works are characterised by creative integration of simple, and sometimes random, audial and visual worlds detected in the surrounding world. He is a wide-ranging, yet uncompromising artist. His works have been presented at several domestic and foreign festivals and he was awarded the annual AVEK Prize for audio-visual art in 2006 and the Best film in European Media Art Festival, Osnabrücke 2010.
