Day and Night of the Dragon (1-3)

Annette Arlander

Wrapped in a green scarf, I call the dragon by ringing a small green ceramic bell from the panorama spot on Harakka Island facing south on the last day of the year of the dragon during a 24-hour period at 3-hour intervals between 3 pm on February 2 and 3 pm on February 3 2013. The work consists of three parts; in the first part the human figure is on the left, in the second part on the right and in the third part behind the camera.
