Jaakko Pernu is a Finnish sculptor and artist who uses natural materials to create massive structures that illustrate the relationship between nature and its inhabitants. Pernu grew up helping his father build wooden boats, and used those skills to build grand homages to nature. Pernu then leaves his sculptures to the elements, allowing them to degrade naturally so that the materials return to the earth. The artist's work will probably remind you of Jaehyo Lee, whom we interviewed about his own environmental sculptures.
