This image is from “Wall Piece with 200 Letters” by Mikko Kuorinki, which was staged at Kiasma in Helsinki in 2010. Each week for about a year, the artist rearranged letters to compose new texts (generally quotations from writers, artists, and other creative people).

In the years since it was first staged, images from this project have spread virally across social media. The text above, loosely adapted from the Bergman film The Magicianhas enjoyed an especially active afterlife on Tumblr.
