Brought By the Wind

Toni Rissanen, one of the visitors of the Kalamaja Art Hub – a community art space we were hosting in Varjakka this Summer – wrote this poem inspired by the sites and sounds of Warjakka. Pictured here is the poem in Finnish and English written in our guest book and also subtitling John Collingswood‘s video art he had created to the sound installation by musician Jussi Alaraasakka.

Here is the poem in English:

speaks by remembering

melts by whispering

hears by feeling

the way of the Winds

And here’s the Finnish original:

puhuu muistaen

sulaa kuiskaten

kuulee tuntien

tuulten tie
