Kökar Blue Screen 1

01:21, looping, single channel, no sound


I worked at an artists’ residency in Kökar, a small island in the Finnish Archipelago. The sea reminded me of a blue screen, as the weather was good and it was wind still. The sea was also present in everything I saw there: In the light, humidity of air, professions, traffic, tourism and history of the island. I started to think what would be left if the sea was not there or it would be damaged by some disaster. I made the colors of the sea disappear in this meditative video with a somewhat sinister undertone.
