With Elms in Kaivopuisto 1 & 2

Annette Arlander

This time-lapse video is part of the project "Performing with Plants". I visited a group of elm trees in Kaivopuisto Park in Helsinki in 2017, between 10 January and 17 December, all in all 101 times. I recorded the visits on video from two different distances and edited them into a two-channel installation, which contains one minute of each visit, and combined these videos into a split-screen version as well.
