Christmas Piece

Acceleration. Christmas. Combustion Engine. Consumerism. Globalization. Religion. Rotation. Tradition. Transformation. Tree. 

The video "Christmas Piece" shows a tree being rotated rapidly by the force of a combustion engine. The machinery is being operated by Pentti Aaltonen and Markku Österman, the two mechanics responsible for engineering it. The concept of the piece has been developed in early 2010 during a residency at Galleria Titanik, Turku.
