Juss Heinsalu is an Estonian artist focusing on clay as a medium, a source and an environment through a research-creation methodology. He received his MFA at NSCAD University in Canada, and previously studied at Estonian Academy of Arts. His recent works with clay and light explore the relationship between matter and energy. By combining and translating physical materials and forms with digital means, he creates optical conditions to observe and reveal the embodiment of life within inanimate materials.
