He is interested in questioning the realism connected to image files that we consume by deconstructing them in the spirit of glitch art – despite this his work is more related to conceptual art via the strict structural operations he uses in programming them, rather than to errors.
He wishes to bridge the coder-aesthetics to the traditions of experimental cinema and informalist & impressionist painting. He graduated from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, Time and Space Art department in 2011. During his studies he also spent a semester at the University of Arts Berlin. Räsänen's moving image works have been presented in various venues including CCA Derry / Londonderry, ARD1, ZDF, Arte, ORF, Anthology Archives NY, Videotage HK, Ars Electronica Linz and FRACTO Berlin.
