About this video

This four-channel video installation (46 min 50 sec) was performed in the year of the dragon. Wrapped in a green scarf, I call the dragon by ringing a small ceramic bell on the roof of the bunker on Harakka, in part 1 facing North, in part 2 facing East, in part 3 facing South and in part 4 facing West. The round of the year is repeated twice, once from the left and once from the right. The work was recorded in four directions from the roof of the bunker in the southern part of Harakka Island, approximately once a week between February 4, 2012 and February 3, 2013. It is best presented as four synchronised projections towards the four cardinal directions.
