FOREST STORY (Metsätarina) INTERVIEWS
In 2019, Miettinen started creating a multiyear conceptual and touchable environmental artwork, Circulation in Icelandic Finnmörk, part of the Heiðmörk nature reserve. The artwork consists of Forest Story Interviews as well.
In Forest Stories, people tell about their relationship with the forest. How does the forest affect their lives, and what are their future dreams for trees and the forest? How do they think climate change is visible? Collecting the stories started in the winter of 2019 in Iceland, and the goal is to film new Forest Stories every year as part of Circulation and its expansion. In addition, the interviews are watchable in a video series.
"I collect Forest Stories from experts in the field and those interested in the forest."
