In the end of August Capsula is co-organising a workshop in the woods of Juupajoki, Finland. It results from the artist residency of Agnes Meyer-Brandis in the University of Helsinki Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station.
Call for participants is open until 24th June and the workshop takes place on 29th -31st August, 2014.
TEALEMETREE * Workshop by Agnes Meyer-Brandis 29-31st August, 2014
The workshop starts as an expedition into the forest and the SMEAR II station at Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station, Juupajoki, Finland. It continues as a journey into the soil, into the trees, into the clouds and the hovering matter in between, finally leading the participants into the realm of smallness.
We will investigate the experiments and data production archieved at the forest-research station of Hyytiälä. We will develop our own experiments and take samples of the invisible. On the way we will collect berries, data, aerosols and questions and try to trade and communicate them.
As this communication ideally would be mutual between the harvesters and the harvested we might have to develop new languages.
Beside that we are going to have a tea with a tree.
Tea=a traditional beverage made from steeping the processed leaves, buds in water.
Telemetry=The word is derived from Greek roots: tele = remote, and metron = measure.
Tree=There is no universally recognised precise definition of what a tree is, neither botanically nor in common language.
If you are interested, sign up here: firstname.lastname@example.org, title your email with ” Climate Whirl Workshop 2014″ and your name.
We would like to have max 100 words description of you and your motivations to take part to the workshop.
Max 15 participants will be selected, University of Helsinki students and stuff are prioritised.
The selected participants will be informed by 30th June 2014 and prepared with more detailed information of the workshop.
