UNDER THE PARIS SKYLINE - 2015
A collaborative piece with Sauli Sivio and Sam Celtic that uses photographic, video and audio elements to highlight the contrast between the occurrence of an event and the retelling of that same event. The narratives are presented in layers; Under the Paris Skyline contains several bits of video that have been filmed by the main characters themselves as the events unfold, while the main audio is an interview that has been carried out later on. This gives an interesting emphasis on the collaboration and the distinctiveness of the visual and verbal storytelling. The contrast between the visuals and the audio serve as a reminder of how written and spoken tales cannot always reproduce the whole story. By the same token, visuals alone do not give a full context to the event taking place. It is only by utilizing the two in conjunction with one another that the viewer can begin to fully comprehend the events that occurred.
Exhibited at SIC Contemporary Art Space in Helsinki, Finland.
