Marche Funèbre

Jarkko Räsänen

Moths flew inside my studio after the video projector's light in the countryside of Wiepersdorf. Spiders ate them. After I cleaned the floor and threw them outside, I noticed that one started to move by itself against the wind. As I looked down, I noticed an ant carrying the corpse back towards the grassfield and forest where it originally had come from. The soundtrack consists of field recordings including birds singing, and the sounds of an ant colony walking over dry leaves accompanied by looping piano chords.
