The industrial hum of that factory has followed him since. While Modig searches for that humming ambience, we get to hear bits of his daily life: a visit to the parents, and a swim in the avanto.
Kimmo Modig (b. 1981) is an artist living in Turku, Finland. He works with sound and performance. Modig also writes articles about and gives lectures on art and sound.
