We are busy preparing to travel to Pyhäjoki, Finland next week for a two week intensive gathering called “Case Pyhäjoki — Artistic reflections on nuclear influence 1.” We have been making a “powerless powerpoint”—a slide presentation that can work without electricity—to introduce our work and experience working at the intersections of art, ecology and activism. […]
The edge effect is this idea that the more edge you create, the more biodiversity you create, where a meadow meets a forest or a piece of water meets a meadow. Two different ecologies meet. Two different kinds of landscapes meet … that is where you find the most biodiversity at that edge.
We have teamed up once again with Antye Greie-Ripatti, as Radio Aktiv, to present our sonic deep mapping of a small town in Finland and its struggle to free itself from a nuclear-powered future. We were invited by Radius, an experimental radio broadcast platform based in Chicago, IL, USA, to transmit three new compositions as a part […]
We met Antye Greie-Ripatti this past summer in the small Finnish town of Pyhäjoki at Case Pyhäjoki: Artists Respond to Nuclear Influence, a two week retreat bringing together local activists, citizens, and artists from Europe and beyond. Her artist run initiative, Hai Art was an event co-sponsor […]
This summer we were part of a deeply inspiring camp of artist, activists, and researchers called Case Pyhäjoki in Pyhäjoki, Finland. We’ve written about it here and here. The camp was focused on bringing people together to talk about a nuclear power plant proposed for this rural […]

On September 8, Sunday, the first broadcast was made of the Radio Aktiv Sonic Deep Map, a radio show created for broadcast made up of various recorded material gathered at the Case Pyhäjoki camp for artists, theorists, scholars, cultural producers, and activists to respond to the threat of nuclear power in […]
“Kiitos” is Finnish for “thank you.” This short report is of a project we realized with Daniela Canila at Case Pyhäjoki, in Pyhäjoki, Finland, and initially posted here.
As the group at Case Pyhäjoki has gotten to know Pyhäjoki better, and the local struggle to save Hanhikvi […]
This was written for Case Pyhäjoki’s blog. It is a reflection on the use of deceptive tactics to encourage a community to accept a nuclear power plant.
Fennovoima signs adorn public works in Pyhäjoki, like the fence of this sports field near the town’s high school where Case Pyhäjoki is taking place. The name […]
NOTE: This post was made by our new friend Antye Greie on the Case Pyhäjoki web site.
