Noronkoski’s works combine the mediums of photography, video, sculpture, and text. They explore the line, or rather the space, in-between the visual and the written language, in-between a thought or an idea and reality: "How each individual means of expression, with differing temporal and material qualities, contributes to the common conversational space”, as the artist puts it. Many of his works are accompanied by short stories that seem to shed more light on and create a clearer image of the thought process behind the physical artwork. In his works, photography is both a window to another time and space as well as a mirror reflecting the here and now back to the spectator. "If my artistic practice would impose a question, it would be: what, or rather, where is an image? Where is an image that exists between the actual and the imaginary — at the feet, and in unknown atmospheres.”
