ARTIST RESEARCH: Tellervo Kalleinen & Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen (Oct 2010)

Tellervo and Oliver presented their practice in an artist talk at CAA lecture series in Turku University. They continued to another visit to the islands, beginning to collect material for their project on science fiction archipelago. They interviewed a number of locals in a few days across the islands, from Korpo and Houtskär to Aspö, about their fears and dreams for the archipelago – imagining what it could possibly be like in one hundred years: a paradise of simple quality living, all dressed in woollen flying suits, or a gated community for the rich where the majority language is English or German, perhaps inhabiting huge skyscrapers on tiny isles. Or, perhaps nothing much changes after all.
