Instant Kuusi is an interactive installation inspired by a story about a matchbox Jean Sibelius used to keep with him when he travelled outside of Ainola. The matchbox contained moss and other bits of forest, so that he could be transported back to his favourite place by smelling the contents, wherever he was.
The forest was created by remixing nature paintings by Finnish Artists, which were retrieved from the Finnish National Gallery archives. For video material and natural and city sounds we used YleArkisto materials and for the piano recordings material provided by Yle.
