Kati Roover:
The Scent of the Changing Sea

Production supported by CAA

The new video and sound installation by Kati Roover weaves together multisensory experiential knowledge and scientific observations in a poetic reflection on the possible futures of the Baltic Sea. The video essay approaches empathically the marine ecosystems and their manifold transformations.

Roover has been filming the changing seasons in the Finnish Archipelago, including on the island of Seili in collaboration with CAA and the Archipelago Research Institute of Turku University. Roover took part in the two Spectres of Landings retreats, organised by CAA in 2019, as part of the Spectres in Change project, supported by Kone Foundation. The work has also been supported by the Marine Research Centre SYKE (Finnish Environment Institute).

The Scent of the Changing Sea was premiered in the exhibition Meadow, curated by Taru Elfving and organised by ONOMA in Fiskars, Finland, June-August 2020.
