In Finnish, Lintukoto means a warm, peaceful, paradise-like place. A clown from affluent Singapore, a city-island ranked the world's most emotionless society, visits a mutable Finnish forest that teases and engulfs its visitor. A resurrected Pierrot - romantic, sensitive, truth-seeking, moon-facing, disillusioned weeper of the cosmos - plays alone with the many faces of itself. Nature, at once rosy, dark, and alive with myths, gifts Pierrot an opportunity for modern spiritual metamorphosis.

Most images taken with an iPhone, the modern clown's instrument of choice.
