After visiting in the Koli residence, Anna Zeilinger curared and organized Environmental Art aus Finnland  photographs exhibition in Austria 2010.

Anna Zeilinger a young artist from Austria had work in Finland as an artist in residence at Kolin Ryynänen in  October 2006.  She wrotes 2006:

"I met several interesting Finnish artists. What interests me the most in Finnish art is environmental art. I consider the Finnish approach very unusual because it combines so many different aspects of nature, artificiality, the relations of people to the natural environment and so much more. 
 
In my current work I focus on the concepts of nature and artificiality. I document situations found in nature and also create installations of my own. While man’s impact on the environment is huge, an ephemeral quality nevertheless can be found in man-made materials and constructions.

The final products of my work are photographs; in contrast to more traditional forms of environmental art, some of my work is completed digitally. Through the use of technical devices I try to minimize my own impact on the environment.

I see my work as a response to traditions in landscape painting, photography and installation. Firstly, it is a reflection on how nature can be translated through means of visual art. Secondly, it is also a reflection on what nature and sustainability may be. I want to show that our established ideas of what the image of an unspoilt environment may be should be questioned - something that cannot exist in nature may appear to be beautiful or even natural."
