ME/WE, OKAY, GRAY

1993 | 3 x 90 sec | 3-channel monitor installation with furniture | 4:3 | Audio 2.0 | Original language Finnish with English subtitles

ME/WE, OKAY, and GRAY consists of a short three-episode film and a 3-monitor installation. The installation is intended for showing in museums and galleries, and the episodes of the film version in cinemas among trailers and between the adverts on television.

The films are situated, both formally and narratively, in the terrain between short fiction and advertisements. They examine the differences and interactions between the two: the effects of the moving-image tradition and the language of film on advertising; and the use of narrative strategies and means of expression from adverts in drama.
