Yo-cha

Salla Myllylä

The installation "Yo-cha" observes a field visible from an old sports commentators’ hut in Joutsa, Central Finland, for nine months. A trail camera is used to record the changing seasons. In the unheated building the weather conditions are also visible on the surface of the window between the camera and the landscape: ice or dew can be formed on it before the sun can melt or dry it away during the day. The work was made as part of a site-specific project and was first shown in the same space where it had been filmed.
