Illusory Curtains

Arja Kärkkäinen

Illusory Curtains is a 3-channel video installation that deals with the breakdown of reality under pressure. The hectic life of the characters sneaks into the nights, into the only moments of rest; sleep, which eventually becomes an obligation among all. Sleep and resting has to be performed because it is part of the normal schedule.
