The Pohjola Pulse

Artist Antti Maasalo

Lapinmäentie 1, Niemenmäki, Helsinki

The installation located in front of the Pohjola Group headquarters mirrors movement in several ways. In the lower part of the sculpture, the rhythm of pouring water creates an impression of a beating heart. In the upper part, this organic movement is balance by objects reacting lightly to the movements of air, representing the immaterial wind which never releases its hold on life and the environment. The work, made of steel and acrylic, was unveiled in 1990.

The work is relocated to Vantaa. It doesn’t belong to the collections of the Helsinki Art Museum.
