Art & Design Projects
During a 3 month artist in residency (September-December 2011) at Red Gate Gallery in Beijing, China, together with media artist Andreas Zingerle we conducted a research, how to “open museums” with the help of digital technologies. As a outcome of the residency we published the book “Opening Museums – new interaction methods for future museum experiences” (soon available on Amazon). As a part of the research we organized a workshop in collaboration with CAFA City Design School and Today Art museum.
Samalu is a project that investigates Austrian and Korean mountain spirits, searching for their importance within the urban, technology driven society. The project was realized together with media artist Andreas Zingerle, June-September 2011 at the Changdong Art Studion – National Museum of Contemporary Art, Artist in Residency program, Seoul, South Korea. The outcome of the research was an interactive installation and as part of the research we also arranged “21st century San-Shin” workshop series as apart of the Standing by 000 program in collaboration with Mizy Center and Loop Gallery, Seoul, South Korea.
Re: Dakar Arts Festival is a KairUs collaboration developed together with media artist Andreas Zingerle during the artist in recidence program January-April 2011 at Subnet in Salzburg, Austria. The Re: Dakar Arts Festival project documents a new art scam form. The scammers approach artists and galerists with open calls for a fake festival in Dakar, Senegal.
Follow the Cybercrime story, become a facilitator of the anti-art scam movement and see how the scammers operate to avoid becoming a victim yourself.
Killer Fashion Revolution – Fashion Hacktivism for Human Rights , 2008-2010
Killer Fashion Revolution is a project that uses fashion hacktivism to promote human rights. This by transforming war related clothes to new designs promoting various Human Rights Declaration articles. In the project name the “Killer Fashion”-part refers to war related clothes. Revolution; “a sudden, radical, or complete change”, indicates that the “Killer Fashion”-clothes will be radically changed – in this case to promote human rights. In Killer Fashion Revolution fashion hacking happens on both physical and symbolic level. The clothes are altered and the code; materials, seams, drapes, details, etc. are reconstructed. On a symbolic level the meanings of war related garments are redirected to promote positive values. In a situation of war, conflict and injustice the human rights are most neglected and by transforming war related clothes to promote human rights the participants goes through a symbolic ritual of opposing direct and structural violence. The project is planned to take advantage of divers mediums to reach people in various situations, involving them into different levels of participation. The Killer Fashion Revolution -project consists therefore of four modules; workshops, installation, wiki-site and do-it-to- geter guides. These modules support each other, yet work as independent entities promoting human rights and inviting participation.

The first City Art Lab took place in Helsinki May 2010, when 5 strangers came together 12 times during one month to interact with the city. City Art Lab is about exploring a city in various ways without a specific aim, yet a way to find inspiration and new perspectives. The intent of publishing the City Art Lab concept online was to share experiences and open the well working concept for others to use thus promoting a open source ideologies.
