A Short Bio

I'm Satu Kaikkonen (1967) a teacher, a poet and visual poet from Finland. I have always been interested in writing and the relationships between language and image, language and sound & language and movement etc. So my works include tradidional lyrics as well as visual & asemic poetry and sound poetry, abstract comics and poemics ect. I mainly create my visual poems digitally, but I also use concrete objects in my works.

I have taken part in exhibitions of visual poetry, asemic writing and abstract comics in the US, UK, Hungary, Russia, Finland, German & Brazil and my works have featured in numerous poetry magazines, both Finnish and international.
