To me, many things look like something else, that they are supposed to be. That’s why I make art. The first time I saw this, I knew I had to photograph it.
I photographed this one last summer, a year ago, in Finnish archipelago. It’s an old timber house, with an old combustion engine water pump. It works as a great example, about how long human made complexity still echoes, even when left untouched for decades.
It kind of looks like an old robot. It reminded me of Laputa: Castle in the Sky, an animated film by Hayao Miyazaki.
