Concept
Shown on glowing LED screens between snowy slopes, Hehku explores the feelings that are evoked when we see images of lush, warm summer in the middle of the cold and dark winter. 
Will the light and warmth emitted from the screens and shown in the video soothe our minds by reminding us of summer or will they induce a wanderlust for a winter getaway in the tropics? If so, how does one relate to their desire for long-haul travel when the very act of travelling can be harmful for the nature in the destination?
