The images of the video “Footnote #01: Sipilänmäki” seem to stand still: only occasionally a ever so slight breeze in the air causes barely noticeable movements in the vegetation – little shakes that reveal the filmic nature of the source material. A cluster of brightly-lit greenhouses appears to function on a fully-automated basis. Otherwise darkness. Both operators as well as beneficiaries of this structure are absent.
