Sini Pelkki

Shot on 16 mm film, the work examines the length of a thought, the length of a moment. Through repetition and rhythm, the piece builds a sense of a narrative, distance and closeness at the same time. We are looking at a figure in an urban landscape, soon to be dislocated. The Gaze abandons and re-draws the images. Perception grapples with distances; between the figure and its landscape, between the viewer and the piece itself. Installation version also available.
