Video/kinetic Installation
3 Screens, 3 Blueray players, DC Motor, Steel
300x60x40 cm

The work KEKKU was made for the exhibition “Terveisiä perheestä” (Greetings from the family), that took place at Gallery Huuto in August 2013. The exhibition dealt with issues revolving around family and the protagonists in the video footage are my wife, our daughter and I. 
The video shows certain body parts of us sitting on a swing. The vertical aliened screens show us swinging together. The whole set up itself swings back and forward by a DC motor.
The video footage is of different length and generates constantly surprising twists especially because the image freezes for some second in the end of the loop.
While we were shooting the scene we also realized that it actually was the first time that all three of us were on the playground together. It dont mean a thing if it aint got the swing.
