Äidit ja tyttäret 2 

(Mothers and daughters 2)​​​​​​​
5 seconds (9-minute loop)
The sound of my mother's voice reading a quote from Tuija Lehtinen's young adults' novel Kundi kesätukkainen (Guy With Summer Hair, 1996): "Voi sinua Maarit. Milloin sie oikein opit erottamaan toden ja unelmat?" ("Oh, dear Maarit. When will you learn to tell the difference between dreams and  reality?"). The sentence is from a conversation between the mother and the protagonist of the novel, a 16-year-old Maarit Mustonen.
