‘Wallpaper’ is a three-channel moving image installation which employs footage from Renvall’s feature-length experimental work ‘Film1999’. The six-channel soundtrack is a cooperation with Aslak Christiansson.“It’s kind of an anti-film because I was so bored with the films I saw on TV. It could be called an ambient film, it’s wallpaper-like, you can watch it, but there is no story, not one idea. I just decided to shoot material for a year, but mainly things that are not interesting. If I saw something interesting, I would shoot the other way, shoot right beside it.” – Seppo Renvall, 2000
