play all their lives. They build their own world, home, even human relations
from pieces. Similarly, without any actual goal in mind and for the
sheer delight in testing their wits, they solve crosswords and do jigsaw
puzzles. Time and again children build with their Lego blocks something
new and different, a chance creation. Often a mistake in building is
an important element; it leads to something entirely new, incredible,
unexplored and exciting."
Reichstein was born in 1957 in Moscow, and came to Finland in 1990.
He has worked in many branches of the arts: children books, animated
films, paintings, installations and sculptures, leading workshops, holding
art courses, and arranging numerous exhibitions - mainly for children
- in Finland and abroad.
