To Ihaste

Video work To Ihaste was inspired by my fear of growing up and yearning for simpler times spent in childhood home Ihaste. The left side of the video shows documentary shots of the life of teenagers in the suburbs and the right side depicts the landscapes of Ihaste in their emptiness. I tried to understand the closeness and remoteness of people through certain time, place and individuals. Suburban landscapes show well how easy it is to destroy human contact or to prevent it from happening in the first place.
