Mika Taanila: A Physical Ring, 2002, 4 min 32 sek

A Physical Ring is a found-footage film. It’s based on raw material documenting an anonymous Finnish physical test that took place in the 1940's. The original purpose of the test remains unknown. By careful editing techniques, the inanimate research footage is assembled to a piece of kinetic art. An integral part of the piece is the specially commissioned soundtrack by Mika Vainio.

Saara Ekström: Phantasma, 2016, 9 min 49 sek

The camera transports the viewer through dreamlike delirious and dilapidated rooms of an aquarium opened in Copenhagen in 1939. The organic merges with the mechanical as time drives the opposite elements towards a joint destruction. 

Mika Taanila: Tectonic Plate, 2016, 1 h 13 min

A camera-less lettrist full-length film about fear of flying, security checks and time zones. After returning from a work trip to Tokyo, the protagonist is stuck at a hotel nearby the Helsinki airport. He's recovering from a jet lag before the next flight.  Text for the film is written by a poet Harry Salmenniemi.
