Playing With the Dragon

Heini Aho

The video Playing with the Dragon portrays a play with fire. A person builds unstable assemblages under burning candles. The illusion of safety or remoteness of danger may alienate one from life. Avoiding danger begins to define the course of the day and what we do in life.
