2156 is cross-section on history of photographic image. It conceals its origins of time an d place with constantly alternating
materialities and narratives. It is an experiment of filmic reality as a gaze into nothingness where bodily presence, repetition, flux and chance encounters tie together elements that originate across time and place, and give them unforeseen significance through the
mystery of belonging together. 2156 is Addressing climate  change, human activities onearth that is hidden in the text, written by Harri Laakso.
