"The 80+1 Kilpisjärvi-program presents video screening program, which introduces documentary and artistic approaches to the issues dealing with climate change, nature, humans, and the future. The videos will be screened in the afternoons in Linz / Global Window (Hauptplaz) 15th-18th July, and in Kilpisjärvi on friday 17th July in the evening. The following works on video are presented: For example: Tarja Trygg / Solargraphy Tarja Trygg´s video of SOLARGRAPHY SPACE ART describes the circle of the life and time. It begins from a torn solargraph and the camera drives into a black hole. The infinite spatial space is opening in the solargraph that looks like space outside the world in the image that has been damaged by the moisture and humidity but it looks extremely beautiful in blue tones and the title of the video appears. The sound world is without words and made by Taneli Tuovinen. The result is very meditative and gave a spatial feeling in the show. Solargraphy makes invisible Sun´s paths into visible in landscapes at various latitudes of the world. We cannot see the movements of the sunlight with our naked eyes but solargraphy can records them. The tracks and curves of sunlight look different depending on the positions where we are. What are the green and blue curves of the sunlight in the images? Could solargraphy discover air pollution? The solargraphs in the video are from the Global Project of Solargraphy. More solargraphs can be seen on the website of the Global Pinhole Art Photography Project of Solargraphy Tarja Trygg´s article on Solargraphy The art of catching the sun’s path through a pinhole camera Tarja Trygg, is a PhD. student, and the creator and designer of this global art project of solargraphy.
