Warm and sunny evening in a national park with my wife-to-be on May 1, 2005. Hiking in the forest and planning to stay overnight in a tent, while everybody else in whole Finland is drunk celebrating May 1st in the city or at home. I make fire and we sit down to have a bottle of champagne and make a toast… well, the story ends here, but before my glass was empty, I took a photo of fire (embers) through a glass which had few drops of champaign on the inside surface of the glass. This small crop of a photo (3×4cm), in all colors of “firechampaign”, is cloned ca. 150 times. Then every piece is rotated, moved and blended with each other. Original size is 60×90cm and printed on canvas.
