is a sculptor based in Finland who crafts utopic worlds through his creation of a community of sculpted figures. From an idyllic forest, surrounded by a community of artists, Simonsson’s Moss People
emerge as emblems of childhood innocence, forced to fend for themselves in a world without any moss adults. As the community of moss people expands, the children grow into giants and become residents of a dystopia-turned-utopia that appears in contrast to the human world. We talk to Kim about the origins of this community, the development of his craft, the honesty he values in the process, and his vision for the future of his sculptured utopia.
