Photographers Karoline Hjorth (Norway) and Riita Ikonen (Finland) set out to create a series called Eyes as Big as Plates which explored the mental landscape of their neighbourly and pragmatic Finns.  For the project a number of Finnish seniors modelled in remote areas of south and east Finland wearing natural organic headwear and clothing sourced from the location.

The project was created as a proposal for MoMA PS1 and MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design which put a call out to artists, designers and architects for the rehabilitation of the Rockaways post-Hurricane Sandy. Karoline Hjorth and Riita Ikonen’s proposal was to team up with Rockway-minded New Yorkers; through a set of performance programs and photography shoots in the pockets of wilderness found in the Rockways, the project will enable individual expressions of what a sustainable waterfront means.
