First I had 100 meters of clear 35 mm film. In 2008, I painted a moving image on it and named the painted film Pori-Helsinki.
Then I painted a sea at night over Pori-Helsinki and a garden over the sea, something abstract over the garden and then years later a landscape over everything I had previously painted, flashing by like 46 years in a minute.
Now I have once again painted another layer on the film that I have been working on for years (2008–). I let the images emerge from the subconscious and lead the way. After painting – and digitizing – a hundred meters of film, I cut fragments from my film and video archives and added them. I also examined the images with a magnifying glass and zoomed in on the details. Words also crawled out from somewhere.
The soundtrack consists of P. P. Puska’s music and four-track recordings on used cassette tapes.
