High Tide Island

Pekka Sassi

High Tide Island was shot with a digital still-camera that captures video signal for 15 frames per second. This results in the film-like quality of the image. The video has been shot in the artist's living room and at the backyard in Vuosaari, a neighbourhood that can be translated as "High Tide Island".
