Spring at Geassemahjohka


The video was made in Utsjoki, Finland, in June 2024. It features a ceramic vase collaborating with the forces of water. The video work is also a collaboration between Maarit Mäkelä and Priska Falin. Researchers Jaakko Erkinaro and Juha Hiedanpää placed the vase in Geassemahjohka, next to River Teno, where it had the potential to provide a home for juvenile salmon.
