Ketunleipä Listening Station, 2020
Platform for listening sounds and poems
Poems are written/experienced in Reposaari in autumn 2017. Sound material is collected from the site and later arranged into sound collages. They are an archive, a listening station, upon which I wish the visitor to lay down on a soft surface. To taste the subjective memory trail of words, the acidic flavour of ketunleipä, or wood sorrel, and the autumn breeze on a forest path.
