Eesti keeles: Näitus Eesti läbi 100 silmapaari

The project gives a visual overview of Estonia's story told by 100 Estonians and Estonian-spirited people ages 100 to 1 year, through their portraits, eyes, and emotions. The oldest - 100-year-old - was born the same year as the Republic of Estonia, in 1918. The youngest was born on February 24, 2017. There is only one person for each year of the Republic of Estonia! In parallel with the portraits, we introduce the country of Estonia, as a place, where we are from, and where we live. This way, views of the most well-known Estonian places (the Old Town of Tallinn), buildings (farmhouses), emotions (the song festival), accomplishments (e-Estonia), phenomena (bogs) are also portrayed. This gives those who do not know Estonia well, an idea of our country's culture, nature, technical accomplishments, cuisine, and traditions. The two visuals, the portraits and atmosphere, are tied together by short texts in Estonian and English.
