Pinhole animation, spoken word
Finland, the land of Narnia, cute fluffy reindeer and rye bread, was without a doubt amazing. Paljakka Nature Reserve did look just like Narnia, it didn't stop snowing in the month I was in residency, I stood in awe at the majesty of the forest every time I stepped foot amongst the trees, from my studio, from the watchtower, out in the car. Yet these trees and the house started to enclose around me, the never-ending snow, the daily routine became suffocating, sinister, stressful. The need to escape the house became overwhelming and I took every opportunity I could, only to find myself surrounded by more trees, more snow, still suffocated, breathless.
