The Vessel,  it’s all gone mushroom shaped and then to dust!

Henna-Riikka Halonen

This fictional short film shows an androgynous character's journey in the empty water tower through cinematic means of sci-fi. The notion of time acquires new meanings inside of the building. Architecture is brought forward as a state of mind.
