Ember is a group of huge empty black sacks sewed by hand from tarpaper and paper string. To me these sacks are enormous coal embers that glow in the dark and cold evening. The idea for sacks came from a task of making a work that would illustrate the amount of carbon dioxide produced each year by a Finnish family of four. I thought barbecue parties and the sacks full off black dusty coal. I recall the fire place where the last glow fades away.
