Parousia (2017)

3-channel video installation
09:38 min

Many universes meet in this video installation – people are travelling, working, moving. As they move from place to place, the one becomes the other. Some children are playing, others just hang around. For a moment both the camera’s movement and the people stop. Click! The moment is recorded on camera. At the same time, others are overworked as their days pass through physical labour. These transitory moments are experienced by the person with the camera – the moving camera becomes an experiencer, a moving subject, which the viewer can identify with at certain moments.

The video installation is the third artistic project of Marika Orenius’s research at Aalto University.
