“Inner Landscapes” is a project by Finland-based photographic artist, Marja Pirilä, and Satoko Sai + Tomoko Kurahara, a ceramic artist unit working in Japan. Interviewing elderly people living in certain regions, the artists have collected fragments of the times (histories) those people have lived, projecting in the works the time that flows through their inner selves and the lands in which they live. The works go beyond a mere record of memories that reflect the lives of actual individuals, to highlight universal stories that we can all empathize with and share, transcending countries, cultures, and generations.
