More Info Works / Is This Me?

Onks tää mä?

Animation about the changes that pregnancy causes in the artist’s body. The artist appears herself in the video: pregnant, in a profile. The female body changes: belly bounces up and down, gets bigger and smaller in a fast tempo. Objects and furniture change their places and travels inside the room. Subtitles repeat what people have said to the artist during her pregnancy. In the end a big question mark lands on top of the artist. The soundtrack consists of the heart beats of an unborn child.
