Teemu Lehmusruusu: Maa jalkojemme alla

Address: Ritarikatu 1

Maa jalkojemme alla (The Land Beneath Our Feet) explores man’s relationship to the earth, on top of which our daily reality takes place. If we could rewind back through time and geological periods, we would notice that the tectonic plates and surface formations are in continuous, living motion. Koli was once as big as the Himalayas. Could reminding us of time’s processes be the road to a more holistic empathy in which man is just a part of the whole?
