ELYTRA

Johanna Väisänen

The work is a description of the Finnish landscape. The river’s edge lives every moment, the water rises and falls. The meditative, slowly moving video of the landscape is repeated in multiple water reflections. The symmetry of mirrored, recurring reflections triggers the human mind to look for characters as in the Rorschach Test or cloudspotting. The image becomes almost abstract despite its representational origin.
