The Park

The Park is a video panorama depicting space between the domesticated and the wild, a transmission stage between urban and natural environment. The sports park is an autonomous zone with its own rules: in parks, things beyond the daily habits can be done.
The piece is realised through intricate video techniques combining concrete places and characters in our daily life experience: architecture, people and symbols from a globalised world, Helsinki and Berlin. It plays with the themes of urbanity / periphery, rationality/ irrationality, tourism, sports and ecstasy.
