Hannu Huhtamo: Eutierria

A video installation about human-nature connection and the passage of time.

Eutierria is a video installation that combines a real-time light painting technique with stop-motion animation. The work describes human connection with nature and how the passage of time can be experienced. Presented is an ordinary forest which turns into a stage for images coming from the subconscious; as if moving between dream world and the reality.  

The long exposure time creates a strong feeling of time standing still. Light trails may be seen as different shapes in the middle of darkness. What is decisive is not a certain moment, but the path taken by the light in time and space.
