Haihara

Salla Myllylä

The panoramic video installation follows changing seasons and passers-by in a view opening from the terrace of Haihara manor house in a suburb of Tampere. The view features a birch alley leading down to a lake. Daycare groups, dog owners, cross country skiers, picnickers and joggers pass by. The subject of the video might be, quoting Georges Perec, ”what happens when nothing happens.” The installation was filmed using a trail camera.
