“Inspired by the recent successes of spaceflight companies, the Oulu Cathedral is being transformed into a launch platform. The work projects the traveler into a dreamlike state, where the vision of truth has changed, and the destination is no longer a given.

The piece explores the intertwined features of space travel and the exploration of one’s own mind. As one moves through flowing layers, the sense of time and space gets distorted: the journey has changed the reality around us, or perhaps just our ability to perceive the world around us.”
