Lupina (2016)
One channel video installation without sound
Loop 3 min 28 sec

A man dressed in black dances in a lupine field. The slow movements of the man and the gentle sway of the flowers make the atmosphere meditative. In the video played in a continuous loop, lupines first crush under the human body, but then they grow again and embrace the man. The combination of the man’s character, dance and flowers raise questions about the state of humanity and its relationship with the natural environment. The experiences of freedom, anxiety, and guilt are intertwined. The beauty of the lupines is enchanting, but our knowledge of the plant as a harmful foreign species makes us feel uncomfortable to deal with it.

But something is still moving (2014)

”But something is still moving” on kuvaajan näkemys Raisa Fosterin Ketjureaktio-tanssiteatteriperformanssiin, johon kuvasimme kesällä 2014 paljon uutta videomateriaalia Mikkelissä. Ketjureaktio on itsestään jatkuva tapahtumien sarja: voimakas mutta samalla herkkä kuvaus minuuden etsinnästä ja eksyksissä olemisesta.

Itselleni proggis oli upea mahdollisuus viedä visuaalista näkemystä uudelle alueelle ja kokea flow kuvaus- ja editointivaiheissa.

Näkemys on samalla osa Visuaaliviestinnän Instituutin Kuvallisen ilmaisun perustutkinnon (kuva-artesaani) opinnäytetyötä.
