The video shows glass-plate photographs projected onto a curtain, like magic-lantern slides. They were taken by the Finnish village photographer Frans Viljamaa in the 1910s or the 1920s. The soundscape is based on an old tape recording of a woman born in 1899 recalling the Finnish Civil War (1918).
