'Elevator solo' and 'Another elevator solo' are collaborations with two dancers, Pia Karaspuro and Päivi Rissanen. This is a study of seemingly non-virtuosic movement in a small space. The video is shot without any camera movements. The separately shot dancers were superimposed together while editing and therefore they appear transparent and ghost-like. 'Elevator solo' concentrates on slow movement, 'Another elevator solo' on fast movement.
