The Do It Yourself and reuse technology metal planes appear to be symbolic of military action,
yet simultaneously representative of an exit strategy, the crossing of the country’s borders by
air, immigration and emigration issues. The airspace - a perspective from which to assess
ones own position as both a liberating and a frightening idea.
Also responding to the current political milieu of strained international relationships between Russia
and the West, Flo’s video reflects on the atmosphere prevailing under these circumstances in
Estonia. In the video metal taken off the roof is being folded into plane figures, much like the Do It
Yourself models folded by children from paper. The artist contemplates the heightened levels of
paranoia in the media, calls for the increase in funding of the Department of Defence during
elections, resumed faith in NATO membership, and so on.
