We are continuing our Artist Parents series with a new interview with Sydney based artist, Zanny Begg. Zanny is a friend of the Mythological Quarter whose work explores how we can live in the world differently. I first met her in Gary, Indiana when she was there, [...]
“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 had a family adventure today in the Bispebjerg neighborhood of Copenhagen. We were on the hunt for a playground shaped like a man, and a sculpture of a giant owl. We had heard about both from a friend, and all we had was a sketchy hand drawn map. Of course we looked [...]
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 [...]
Christa is a Chicago based artist who works with organic imagery most often with ink on [...]
I found a new poster in the neighborhood this week to add to the Søger Lejlighed (apartment hunting series). This one was a great find because of the personal photograph of the people searching + a nice drawing + a heartfelt letter. This flyer is one of my favorites [...]
