links to reviews and texts


A collection of texts, reviews and articles on various projects. In many cases I am referred to by my avatar’s name – Nonnatus Korhonen. Some of these texts provide insight into my work that can only be provided by a third party with a critical mind and a sense of adventure when exploring the works themselves.
