It is almost four months later, since the last time I posted anything here. But here, is another project update which was done in February with a friend of mine who worked on the music specifically for this video work.
"The Super Polyester Electro(ae)static is a video work done based on an observation and response in daily basis, literally like how the name suggested.
For the winter has been cold and dry in Finland, the bodies are acknowledged each time when a synthetic fiber content clothing has been put on. The electrostatic that is, giving out sparks which also comes with a dry (almost) musical sound of fireworks.
In this interpretation of electrostatic, it is the collision of mostly polyester and the hair. To speak in terms of the ‘technicality’, each sweater has different polyester fiber content and thus the amount of static is different. Nevertheless, this match would be the most evident happening in Finnish winter’s everyday life circumstances.”
