Calling the Dragon again (Bell)

revisit and compilation (with original materials around)

The synopsis for the four-channel video installation Calling the Dragon 1-4 (Bell) (6 min. 28 sec.) created in 2012-2013, which is here inserted in the recording of a revisit to the site on 10.9.2019, reads as follows in the catalogue of the Distribution Center for Finnish Media Art:


I call the dragon by ringing a bell on the roof of the bunker on Harakka Island once a week for a year in such a way that only the sound of the bell is heard, in four directions: 1) facing North, 2) facing East, 3) facing South, and 4) facing West.? The video was recorded in four parts, 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. The four parts of the work can be shown in sequence or individually.
