Exhibition Anne Golaz :

Born in Switzerland in 1983, Anne Golaz graduated in 2013 from the Photography Master Program of Aalto University of Art and Design in Helsinki. She wrote her master thesis «On Photobooks and Narratives». Previously she studied at the Photography School in Vevey and in 2012 she spent 6 months in NYC at the School of Visual Arts.

Her photographic approach deals mainly with the representation of rural communities and questions fundamental notions such as the sense of belonging to a place or the complex relation with nature.

Anne Golaz’s first work Rural Scenes has been exhibited in several places mainly in Switzerland and France since 2008. Her series Chasses (Hunting Games) was published by Infolio in 2010 and among the selected works for the Aperture Portfolio Prize in New York. Anne Golaz was part of the young photographers selected for the publication and the exhibition ReGeneration2.

Her Finnish series Metsästä (From The Woods) was exhibited for the first time in the Images Festival 2012 in Vevey CH and in several places since that. Metsästä was published by Kehrer Verlag and part of the selection of the best photobooks of 2012 by the Aperture Paris Photo First Book Award.

 

Helsinki University Metro Station (Helsingfors universitet) is a metro station located in the eastern part of Kluuvi. It serves downtown Helsinki, the University of Helsinki campus and the Kruununhaka district. The station opened on March 1, 1995 and is the newest subway station for the Helsinki metro, except for the Western Metro.

 

From 1995 to 2014, the station was called Kaisaniemi metro station (Swedish: Kajsaniemi metrostation). In April 2014, the City Council of Helsinki decided to rename the station according to the Helsinki University Central Campus, located near the University of Helsinki (Helsingfors universitet). The new name immediately came into force although the proposal raised objections with several local and regional agencies.

 

The location of the metro station was decided in 1971, and the station box was excavated during the metro's original construction work in the late 1970s. The station's opening date was postponed due to a lack of funds.

The station is designed by Kontio - Kilpi - Valjento Oy. The station is 27 metres below ground level and 22 metres below mean sea level. From the subway pier there is only one escalator shaft leading up to the ticket hall, at the western end of the quay area. From the bottom, there are two elevators on the left side of the three escalator that move diagonally up the escalator shaft. These skylifts are not commonly used. Similar cable cars are also available at Sörnäinen, Hakaniemi, Lauttasaari, Koivusaari and Aalto University metro stations.

 

The station is the only one to be named not only Finnish and Swedish but also English (University of Helsinki). By its former name Kaisaniemi was the only station on the Helsinki metro, whose name was announced in one language only - the Finnish name Kaisaniemi and the Swedish Kajsaniemi are pronounced in the same way.

 

Technical Stuff

This is a single shot. Taken at 3200 ISO, f8.0, 1/60, -2/3 at 16 mils. The only post-production involved concerned fiddling with the exposure(+), highlights (-), whites (-), clarity (+), dehaze (+), vibrance (+) and saturation (-). Please note that the adjustments for vibrance and saturation are a package deal or a balancing act. Finally, I added copyright signs with PS CC. The latter is, alas, there to stay due to the fact that my photos were frequently copied. So, don't bother commenting on that.

Human Spaceflight and robotic exploration image of the week:

 

The Cygnus CRS OA-7 cargo spacecraft, SS John Glenn, makes its way to the International Space Station three days after its launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA, on an Atlas 5 rocket on 18 April.

 

Among its three and half tonnes of cargo are crew supplies, vehicle hardware and science experiments is the Aalto-2 cube satellite making its space debut.

 

The first Finnish satellite in space, the Aalto-2 was designed and built by students from Aalto University. The satellite is part of the international QB50 mission that aims to study the layer between Earth’s atmosphere and space known as the ‘thermosphere.’ Part of a constellation of other nanosatellites, Aalto-2 will be released from the Station within a month from the Japanese Kibo module that has a spring-loaded satellite launcher.

 

CubeSats are miniature satellites that weigh between 1 and 10 kg designed to test new space technologies and often used for Earth observation missions.

 

Cygnus is an American spacecraft built by Orbital ATK and uses a pressurised hull designed in Europe by Thales Alenia Space.

Kiasma, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, is hosting the students of Aalto University’s School of Arts, Design and Architecture for the seasonal Christmas Sales.

There were lots and lots of students at different stands, presenting their works for sell. There were many visitors, potential buyers, supporters and friends, too.

 

I stopped at a stand with two lovely glass formed heads anidst many other glassware. The light coming through from one of the heads especially, attracted my attention and I stroke a conversation with the artist.

 

Pauliina was friendly and easy to talk to. She is going to graduate next year from Aalto University where she's been studying art for a few years.

 

In the beginning she studied textile design, but pretty soon afterwards she came to discover her passion. Glass-work has fascinated her ever since.

The challenges in blowing glass and forming it are many, not mentioning the heat--she has burnt her hands, her eyebrows and eyelashes--you have to work fast and every second counts. When she succeeds with a piece, Pauliina is happy and satisfied to see the results of her vision. She loves what she's doing, it is actually all these challenges that inspire her.

The vibrant colours of the jewellery drew me to her table and that's how I came to meet Vivi.

Originally from Latvia, Vivi has been living in Finland, with her Latvian husband, for the past four years.

 

She is going to graduate with her M.A. degree next spring. She did her B.A. studies in her homeland.

 

Vivi is inspired by nature and colours. For some of her tree decors, she collaborates with her husband who does the bottom wooden parts.

 

Vivi likes living in Finland and seemed content with life here.

She was kind and friendly and felt at ease in front of the camera.

 

Here's Vivi in her own words:

"Putting together knot by knot, I have found my artistic spirit in micromacrame art. I believe the strongest elements in my works are perception of world with creative attitude and desire to bring more colours in it.

 

ViviKnots micromacrame art is inspired from vibrant and always changing colours of nature, enriched with my own imagination. I love the beauty of all living things around me but I am also a dreamer and in every created item I like to put in seasonal scent of magic.

 

Minimalist taste of my own lifestyle inspires micromacrame designs to be delicate with thoughtful choice of colours. Specific use of vivid tones and accurate tracking of lines are reflections of my own lifestyle by balancing visual elements and symbolizing unity and harmony.

 

Every item of ViviKnots is unique and brings me smile whenever I see it rises emotions and attracts attention of people passing by in any way or level."

Annika is a comic artist and illustrator. I met her at the Spring Sales of her school department, as part of the Arabia Street Festival Event in Helsinki.

 

"I am currently studying graphic design in Aalto University. I studied fashion design before, but the materialism and wastefulness of the fashion industry was too much for me to handle ethically.

 

"I love telling stories through my illustrations and comics. I want to learn more about animation and to be able to make full length feature films some day. I want to make people see the world differently through my stories.

 

"I hope more humans let go of all the greed they have for money and possessions. I try to live my life as an example for others so I don't buy or consume any animal products and try to buy only what I really need.

The world is running out of materials soon and we need to learn how to recycle more and to consume less.

 

"I want animals to be treated better and humans should stop taking advantage of these helpless animals. Animal rights are really important to me and I try to educate people more about it, but many don't seem to want to know how their consumption choices effect their health, animals' lives, the nature and the future of our planet.

 

"I wish more people would stop and listen and make an effort to change their lifestyles, since it is not just you who suffers from bad choices.

 

"I am struggling to consume less materials in the world, but part of working as a designer is to create new things to the world. I want to create stuff that is not waste, but useful for people, with a purpose.

I am also trying to move much of my work to digital platforms so I wouldn't have to use paper etc in the making process."

In Finland, Walpurgis day (Vappu) is one of the four biggest holidays along with Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, and Midsummer (Juhannus). Walpurgis witnesses the biggest carnival-style festival held in the streets of Finland's towns and cities. The celebration, which begins on the evening of 30 April and continues to 1 May, typically centres on copious consumption of sima, sparkling wine and other alcoholic beverages. Student traditions, particularly those of the engineering students, are one of the main characteristics of Vappu. Since the end of the 19th century, this traditional upper-class feast has been appropriated by university students. Many lukio (university-preparatory high school) alumni (who are thus traditionally assumed to be university bound), wear a cap. One tradition is to drink sima, a home-made low-alcohol mead, along with freshly cooked funnel cakes.

 

In the capital Helsinki and its surrounding region, fixtures include the capping (on 30 April at 6 pm) of the Havis Amanda, a nude female statue in Helsinki, and the biennially alternating publications of ribald matter called Äpy and Julkku, by engineering students of Aalto University. Both are sophomoric; but while Julkku is a standard magazine, Äpy is always a gimmick. Classic forms have included an Äpy printed on toilet paper and a bedsheet. Often, the magazine has been stuffed inside standard industrial packages, such as sardine cans and milk cartons. For most university students, Vappu starts a week before the day of celebration. The festivities also include a picnic on 1 May, which is sometimes prepared in a lavish manner, particularly in Ullanlinnanmäki in Helsinki city.

 

The Finnish tradition is also a shadowing of the Socialist May Day parade. Expanding from the parties of the left, the whole of the Finnish political scene has adopted Vappu as the day to go out on stumps and agitate. This includes not only political activists. Other institutions, such as the state Lutheran church, have followed suit, marching and making speeches. Left-wing activists of the 1970s still party on May Day. They arrange carnivals. And radio stations play leftist songs from the 1970s.

 

Traditionally, 1 May is celebrated by a picnic in a park. For most, the picnic is enjoyed with friends on a blanket with good food and sparkling wine. Some people, however, arrange extremely lavish picnics with pavilions, white tablecloths, silver candelabras, classical music and extravagant food. The picnic usually starts early in the morning, where some of the previous night's party-goers continue their celebrations undaunted by lack of sleep.

 

Some student organisations reserve areas where they traditionally camp every year. Student caps, mead, streamers and balloons have their role in the picnic, as well as in the celebration as a whole.

Sirocco, 2010 - art on Aalto University Arabia campus - by Kivi and Tuuli Sotamaa - arts.aalto.fi/en/services/arabianranta/art_in_arabianrant... #15

"Hello!

I am an illustrator, comics artist and animator currently residing in Helsinki, Finland. I am originally from a small town called Siilinjärvi in Eastern-Finland.

 

I have studied graphic design at Aalto University with a focus on visual narrative and illustration.

 

I have a passion for storytelling in all it’s different forms. I want to create colourful worlds and characters in my art. In the future I hope to work more on animation and games.

 

I work mostly digitally these days. I am excellent at using Adobe programs: Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and InDesign. When I work with my iPad Pro I use Procreate to create my illustrations."
