About Foodycle
Foodycle is a two-day event (12-13 Sep 2013) organised as a collaboration between Pixelache Helsinki with Ruoan Tulevaisuus and other partners with a strong art+design+science base.

In May 2013, I was invited to be one of Pixelache’s food-info-activism micro-residents. During my time in Helsinki, I spent time with several members of Pixelache, Ruoan Tulevaisuus, and Pixelache’s earlier food-info-activism resident, Seungho Lee, developing ideas for the Foodycle event. In September 2013, I was granted a HIAP residency to return to Helsinki. The timing was planned so that I could continue my Art/Tech/Food research, while in residency at HIAP’s incredible Suomenlinna facility, and the timing was in part planned to coincide with Foodycle on 12-13 September.

Day One of the event will take place at Viikki, outdoors on the Library square, University of Helsinki Viikki campus (Viikinkaari 11) – MAP

It will include a farmers market and some really fantastic practical workshops. (I’m certainly attending Lorenzo Ciatti’s sausage making workshop, and ordering veggies from Herttoniemi Co-op).

Day two of the event, will tale place at: Happi (Sörnäisten rantatie 31) & Pixelache (Kaasutehtaankatu 1/21) – MAP

I will present on my research at the intersection of Art/Tech/Food. In the talk, I will map historical and contemporary trade routes of food and how they affect our cultural landscape and well being, by presenting the work of a range of artists addressing these issues. I’ll also be moderating a panel on Food Culture.

Check my scoop.it aggregator page for links to a broad cross section of artist projects, reading lists, and exhibitions.

My presentation will be online shortly.

Panels were streamed and archived live on Pixelache’s Bambuser pages:

Foodycle Panel 1: MEAT (Seungho Lee, Anne-Maria Pajari, Anna Alm / Moderator: Atte Penttilä)

Foodycle Panel 2: WASTE (Arto Sivonen, Miina Porkka / Moderator: Andrew Paterson)

Foodycle Panel 3: CULTURE (Johanna Mäkelä, Aleksi Neuvonen, Saly Wade, Porridge & Potatoes, Moderator: Amanda McDonald Crowley)

HIAP Residency

I have been awarded a residency with HIAP (Helsinki International Artist Programme) in Finland for the month of September, 2013.

suomenlinna_studios suomenlinnaHIAP_cityviewHIAP is a wonderful international artist residency program with facilities at the Cable Factory in Helsinki City, and on Suomenlinna, an island in the middle of Helsinki harbour. I will primarily be based on Suomenlinna in the fantastic studio facilities there.

In addition to finding the time to continue with my ArtTechFood research, I’ll be working on several projects while I’m there:

  • Following up on my Food-Info-Activism micro-residency with Pixelache earlier this year, I’ll be working with Pixelache and with Ruoan Tulevaisuus (Future of Food) on a what is shaping up to be a great event, Foodycle scheduled to take place on 12-14 September.
  • Erich Berger from the Finnish Bioart Society, has invited me to work with him as a facilitator on Field_Notes – Deep Time, a week long art & science field laboratory at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station in Lapland/Finland. Five working groups, hosted by Oron Catts, Antero Kare, Leena Valkeapaa, Tere Vaden, Elisabeth Ellsworth and Jamie Kruse have been selected to develop interdisciplinary research ideas in relation to the Deep Time theme. The field laboratory will take place from 15 – 22 September with a follow up conference in Helsinki on 23 – 24 September.
  • And thanks to FRAME Visual Art Finland, I’ll also be spending time doing studio visits with Helsinki based artists, and holding topical thematic Salon gatherings in my Suomenlinna studio.
