Open - On Thai massage windows in Finland is an artist's book about beauty and creativity. Together with photographer Ida Enegren I've interviewed ten women, who keep their own Thai massage parlour, about the design of their window displays.
The book consists of interviews and portraits of the window designers, pictures of the windows and an essay on the process behind the project. The texts are written in English and Thai. I have contributed with the text and the design of the book.
Open – On Thai massage windows in Finland won the prize for best publication of 2018 in Finland’s most significant creative design competition Vuoden Huiput (Grafia ry), was awarded with the Beautiful Book Prize 2018 in the category for art books and was one of the five selected finalist in the photo book award Vuoden valokuvataidekirja 2018.
OPEN was made possible through support by The Finnish Cultural Foundation, Grafia ry and Konstsamfundet.
