Life as It Flees

Rita Jokiranta

The work is a multichannel video installation that can only be seen as episodic fragments. The installation is inspired by a short story “The Adventure of a Photographer” by Italo Calvino, and the title, referring to the difficulty of catching the real life in images, is a quotation from the short story.
