Project “Case No 11. TALSINKI” is a work that embodies two tightly connected parts. The first part unfolds the topic of Estonian pendulum workers who are working in Finland but who continue on living in Estonia or have some other relation to the homeland which requires constant traveling between Tallinn and Helsinki. The second part deals with the Finns who are carrying a great amount of cheap liquor and other commodities overseas. This phenomenon could also be described as a kind of economical exchange – on the one hand, the Finnish construction market relies on Estonian builders and on the other, the Finns are stimulating the Estonian economy by paying the excise tax.
