Korolainen is fascinated by the idea of time travelling to a fictional past. For her, this dialogue between the past and the present represents an inexhaustible source of inspiration. In her creative practice, Korolainen is constantly influenced by old craft techniques. Consequently, developing her work is often laborious and time–consuming. During the slow process, a special bond is formed between the author and the material that she uses, somehow creating the feeling that the author becomes one together with the material and is no longer fully decisive about the outcome of the process. The work is made together with the “world”.
