Cracks in rocks, they're brittle Pants in socks, against Insects that may bite you The sea is rough Twigs like snakes, they're hiding Rubber boots protect us Walking through the tall grass Keep your eyes peeled Surrounded, surrounded, surrounded Surrounded, surrounded, surrounded Surrounded, surrounded, surrounded Cracks in rocks, they're brittle Pants in socks, against Insects that may bite you The sea is rough Surrounded, surrounded, surrounded Surrounded, surrounded, surrounded Surrounded, surrounded, surrounded Cracks in rocks, they're brittle Pants in socks, against Insects that may bite you The sea is rough

about

During August 2020 ALOES spent a month on the island of Örö in the southern outskirts of the Finnish archipelago. Örö is a 2 km2 island that was used as a military fortress from the early 1900s until the end of 2014, after which it became part of the Archipelago National Park. As the island had been closed for tourism for over 100 years, its nature is home to many rare species.

On this special location we have explored nature and history, while wandering around the island. We have gathered audio and video material and we have written custom software to process image and sound. With this material we have created short audiovisual compositions that combine site-specific, nature- and landscape-related elements, while exploring the idea of remoteness and being surrounded by sea with limited access to resources.
