A Bit Scary Really...

Maarit Suomi-Väänänen

A Bit Scary Really... is a video piece where a couple – a man and a woman – are attempting to fell a tree. It’s not such a simple job for city-folks, it seems. It’s a big spruce and a first attempt. But they’re giving it all they’ve got. Will it fall, and if so, which way…?
