“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.

We used SAMPLR to layer 6 hums. […]
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. […]
Warm weather has brought a flurry of Søger Bolig [Seeking Apartment] fliers to the streets of our quarter. This activity is a complicated process that makes you think of dating services that brings complete strangers together in a semi-public/private manner. We hope to continue documenting these fliers and will work to understand some […]
In addition to the general richness of our recent visit to the Kultivator farm, we had the great experience of collaborating with Kultivator on building a bicycle shed with a green roof. We offered our labor in exchange for being fed and housed for the weekend. It was wonderful to be able to add to […]
I visited the long-running—50+ years—intentional community and eco-village, Findhorn, in northern Scotland. I have known about the place for many years, but had not had the opportunity to visit until a couple of weekends ago. I was curious to see what was there. I had heard the myths about the founders and how the earth […]
We moved the Mythological Quarter site onto Squarespace a few months ago. We have slowly grown frustrated with how limited it is and want the functionality and ability to customize things that WordPress offers. We are starting the process now. There might some glitches in our site for a couple of days.
Here is the poster holder and dispenser we made for our exhibition Household Ecologies #5: The Alphabet Tower. FREE copies of the poster are available at Flensborgade 57, or we are happy to send you one if you request one via email: bonniefortune –at– gmail –dot– com.
We were busy installing art work, we made together, at Flensborgade 57 yesterday, and took a break for lunch. When we stopped on Istegade, we noticed these three pallets rather clunkily, but lovingly, attached to this big wall. A variety of plants was growing between the slats. The garden wasn’t an add for anything nearby […]

We made and installed a network of bat houses in Urbana, Illinois, to support the local and regional bat population, but also to begin a conversation about re-making the built environment.
We write often about artists and art groups that work with putting ‘culture’ back in agriculture. Here is a new favorite: myvillages, a group of three women based in Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK. Read more...
