Vanitas

Anni Puolakka

"Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity." (Eccl. 1:2; 12:8) ‘Vanitas’ portrays four idle characters in the future: a singer, a what-naut, a gamer and an office building. Revolving around the characters’ observations, it wonders about the transient and often meaningless seeming nature of life.
