This video by Estonian artist Jaan Toomik reflects on the artist’s personal nomadic experiences. The video depicted the artist on the back deck of the ferry between Tallinn, Estonia and Helsinki, Finland. The artist moved at the rhythm of the engines from the former Eastern Bloc to the free Western world.
