Her work and lifestyle aimes at self-sufficiency and take place on Nytorp Farm on the Island of Kimitoön in Southwest Finland. Ilveskorpi considers her work as site-specific, where the unique ecology of the site is explored and affected symbiotically. The main themes in her work are permanence, temporality, and flexibility. In her research Ilveskorpi focuses on the contradictions of ecological reconstruction at the level of values. She surveys interactions between the bioregional area and studies how it is possible to reveal and further explore value issues through a practice that relies on local resources.
