This video is a part of 'Happiness and degrowth' that is an interdisciplinary art&science project searching for means of degrowth in everyday life.
The thoughts of happiness were collected from Salo market place (happiness testing on rocking chairs). Salo is a town in economical turmoil due to Nokia's layoffs. We try to find out if degrowth could solve some of the problems. The thoughts are from local people and imagery presents existing economically sustainable actions or places of degrowth in Salo like for example bio-organic farms, shops, recycling centre, market place, local travel locations etc.
The video has three parts that can be presented as an installation. The other parts are Onni / Happiness (vimeo.com/mkk/happiness) and Kohtuus / Degrowth (vimeo.com/mkk/degrowth).
