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. How one can search for small spectacles of the
mundane journeys in order to see beyond the everyday?

If only it would be possible to know...

where we are swaying now - in infinite freedom or chained to horizon? 

An hour to travel from A to B becomes two hours to get back from B to A,
which becomes eight hours within a month,

which becomes ninety-six hours within a year.
But this is when one is lucky to travel for one hour from A to B.

A to B /
approx. 4h 45min
approx. 23550 heartbeats

Time lapse photographs taken over the
course of one average travel - 4h 45min.

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.
