Pendulum

On a ferry between Finland and Estonia, different realities coexist. The hope of a great holiday and a wish for time just to pass by. The latter is a daily reality for tens of thousands of Estonians
living in Finland.

Pendulum project looks into various aspects of traveling between two countries, specifically space and time. A ferry - a commercial entertainment space. One can choose to slit coins into machines or demonstrate swinging moves on a karaoke stage. Or is it a time capsule for work migrants in the middle of the sea, after closing one's eyes, creating an escape void in time to move towards the arrival as fast as possible.

A ferry, or a teleportation machine, as they call it /

could be a non-place and a non-space /a vessel /

an island in the middle of vastness.

A place where time, location and personalities transform

after a brief two and a half hours.
