Carolin Koss is a Helsinki based artist and filmmaker originally from Germany. Koss works with various mediums and often creates contemplative and aesthetic works, which embody internal landscapes or call for environmental deliberation. Her works recurrently have a dreamlike nature and captivate through symbolic language and stylized imagery.
A three-channel video installation about a dystopian world, where obscure forces steer the global fate, nature has been rendered extinct, breathable air has become scarce, and the sun has vanished due to the human error and the exploitation of natural resources. The work focuses on three people who try to survive and escape into their sub-consciousness in order to re-imagine and re-build the contaminated world they live in.
