Mynämäki Library Wall Mounted Sculpture : Turku Libraries
The Youth Group and Cultural Media Trip Through Finland
One of the Finnish Cultural Media Crossing the Finnish project was implemented at the Mynämäki Library and a local youth group. The work was based on Antti Lizelius’s work as the founder of the first Finnish-language newspaper. We looked at different forms of writing poems are written with a quill and ink, an antique typewriter and an old cell phone. We made a large woven wall-mounted work after shredding masses of unwanted library books.
With the masses of paper yarn we created a huge book with woven paper pages for the new children’s library. In it we interwove our initials and a new song we wrote about the evolution of language.

Daniel Blackburn are working with young people to design Persistence of Vision (POV) lighting displays for 50 bikes to create a stunning visual display, called SPIN, for Ride the Lights. Persistence of Vision displays use a sequence of flickering lights and motion to trick the eye into seeing a complete image or sequence of images. Each device is about the size of a large matchbox and can fit directly onto the spokes of a bike.
