In Memoriam

Jarkko Räsänen

The video deals with personal grief. The artist made a camera software with Max/MSP and lit a candle. He took still photos of the candle and created abstracted animation based on them accompanied with his own ambient music. The abstraction process of the candle images opened a new universe of meanings to the final outcome. It can be seen as feminine energies or a portal.
