I often find photos of strangers… This film is a collage of frames shot on an old camera in different cities and countries over the last three years. I shot them from time to time, without any plan – I wanted to make an “accidental” film without a main theme or story, where separate, unrelated episodes can collide and change places, as small events from the past change places in memory. This is an unfinished travel diary without a route, chronology, dates and geographical names, dedicated to random subjects, by which we pass every day.

His video works have been exhibited at modern art museum Kiasma (Helsinki), Museum of the Moving Image (New York), The National Art Center (Tokyo), Kunst Museum Bonn, Museum of Modern Art Erarta (St. Petersburg).
