How to convey a different way of being, another being’s world?
Studies on the Ecology of Drama is a four-screen installation by renowned Finnish filmmaker and artist Eija-Liisa Ahtila.
Against the backdrop of the Finnish countryside, a ‘human actor’ guides us through a series of thoughtful yet playful visual exercises. Through meditative animation and visual effects we’re invited to consider how cinema constructs our relationship to nature.
Featuring a juniper tree, a common swift, a horse, a butterfly and a group of acrobats, the work encourages us to imagine how the moving image can be used to explore the experience of non-human beings in this time of ecological crisis.
