Partly fictional partly documentary project about Mänttä, small town in Finland. Shot in five days.
Monsters, Dark Mills and Angels is the first part of a trilogy. It consists of a video, photographs and digitally produced images.
Aerial photographs depict Jerusalem and heavens above it as a fiery inferno or as a tranquil heavenly landscape. The photographs fall between traditional landscapes and satellite imagery often seen from the conflict areas.
Tourists photographed while being photographed.
Experiments with an abstract object in the landscape: it all comes in to the reflection of how the environment is shaped by humans, at the same time all landscapes are in constant change by nature.
Images are originally attachments from junk mail I’ve received (Viagra, Porn etc.) The average colour of the image has been calculated and colour opacity reduced to 99%. Only the ghost of the original image remains visible.
Images are a results of cultivating plant seeds on film surface. The process takes place in total darkness.
The film has not been developed.
Images are created by detonating fireworks on the film surface.
Images are modified by alteration of digital image file’s source code: inserting alien data, such as genetic sequences and phrases from the Bible.
Photographs are documenting real events. Project included 10 000 free postcards distributed around Helsinki’s cafes, bars etc.
