Curated Expeditions

Curated Expeditions is dedicated to observing and experiencing fascinating earthly phenomena through artistic investigation. In parallel, Capsula wants to revive leisurely traveling experiences, which have been cast aside by the frantic pace of modern day life. Walking, bob-sleighing, swimming, hitchhiking, rowing, sailing, trains and submarines all personify the Capsula Philosophy of Voyage. The project is an initiative of  Ulla Taipale.
