Hetki aikaa taiteelle (A Moment for Art) is an investigation of people's attitudes towards art and an attempt to get them engaged with art in their day-to-day life during the busiest shopping period of the year. In this performance, I approached people to ask them whether they had a moment for art, meaning a little moment they could dedicate to listening a poetry reading of a poem of their choice. During the two different sessions of approaching people, I managed to recite a poem to one person. The project is still ongoing.
