Is This (photographic) Art? -

I'll be celebrating the 170 years of photography by learning about the art part in fine art photography. Not being a photography or art student, I'll need to set up my own method and goals of learning - the curriculum. Collaborative efforts are welcome by the way... I'll be defining and refining this curriculum in upcoming posts but in the meantime I need to make some peak previews. In the previous post I was wondering how can one tell - as a consumer of art - the difference between a...

After a long period I jumped on a bus for going to Helsinki and I had indeed a nice weekend there with some stuffed animals and drinks..  My prolonged dream came true when I finally had a chance to visit  Natural history museum. Some years have passed since my last visit which was nearly twenty years ago. I love this place and I recommend it everyone who are interested in animals and bones. Unfortunately my schedule was fairly tight so I ran all departments through quite quickly, but I would...

Leean lukupäiväkirja -

From the back: "When this fortress-like country recently opened the door to a crack to foreign investment, a Canadian cartoonist Guy Delisle found himself in its capital of Pyongyang on a work visa for a French film animation company, becoming one of the few Westerners to witness current conditions in the surreal showcase city." Surreal you would describe this comic book, when you read about Guy's experiences. It starts right in the airport, which looks like a modern building. But people wander...

Pitää heti myöntää, etten nykyisin juuri katso televisiota tai TV-sarjoja, mutta olenpa kuitenkin varsin iloinen siitä, että tässä eräänä keskiviikkona satuin avaamaan töllöttimen juuri kun tämän TV-sarjan tuorein jakso pyöri ruudussa. Modern Family on ABC-kanavalla pyörivä komedia ja tykästyin tähän hulvattomaan sarjaan heti ensi näkemältäni. Tämä onkin nyt sitten tällä hetkellä ainoa varsinaisesti seurattavien listallani oleva TV-sarja. Kuten bannerikin sen...

Cane furniture does not have to be drab. With a splash of paint you will give a new lease of life to old furniture than many people are ready to throw away. I am especially head over heels with peacock chairs and peacock head boards at the moment. I bought mine for 35euros painted it white... found out  some shops are selling them for hundreds.

Sateinen aamupäivä Portlandissa. Täälläkin ollut kuuma ja kuiva kesä, mutta säätyyppi juuri vaihtunut. Sandiegolaisella Modern Timesilla on nyt Portlandissa toinen panimo. Iso väljä brewpub. Päätin kokeilla souria, fruited super berliner, 6,5%, vadelmaa, kirsikkaa, yumberries. Punaista, tuoksussa voimakkaasti vadelmaa. Hyvin hedelmäinen, hapan, muttei massiivisesti. Ei liian makea, täyteläinen ja näppärän intensiivinen. Portland, Modern Times Belmont Fermentorium, 11.9.2018.

Picture: Umberto Eco as seen by John Macdougall's camera in Chigaco Tribune on 14.11.2011 "Because now I am excruciatingly aware, each time I pick up a book, of all the books I am shunning in order to focus on the one in my hand." The above quote is from an article, Umberto Eco and the guilty pleasure of re-reading , by a cultural critic Julia Keller in Chigaco Tribune on November 9, 2011. The older one becomes the more angsty urgency there is to read those books that should have been read a...

Ikat and Chevron are everywhere and now more than ever there are beautiful modern outdoor rugs to be found. Personally I like to use them inside, as they are very versatile and easy to clean. You can scrub them, rinse them and they dry very quickly unlike wool or cotton rugs. Here are some of my favorites.

   Kalle Mustonen is a Finnish contemporary artist who reimagines modern culture in monumental and mythic terms, as in his intriguing large-scale wooden sculptures with shed-like interiors that visitors are often invited to peek into. The Gnome King series is based on stories from European folklore and recalls a certain variety of garden ornament. It also references a darker ecological and political message.      I met and worked with Kalle in 2004 in Orivesi, Finland, and immediately knew...

I've had inconsistent week. I've got sad news, but also good news. And own life is better than average. Anyway, our loved grandad - pappa Pauli passed away on Tuesday evening, alone in the hospital room in Mikkeli. He was old, 87 yrs, and had various old people's diseases. Though it wasn't predictable, somehow it's relieving - thank you Pappa for all the things in life. Tuesday was also my father's 55th birthday - that made the day even more inconsistent. I got congratulated my dad in late...

The Fulbright Orientation went rather well, a big thank you for the organizers. On the last day we heard an excellent lecture from Prof. Gary Weaver (American University) on American cultures, experiencing cultural shock and getting over it. By the time, however, most of us Fulbrighters representing all continents were already experienced cultural shockees. For most of us the first big shock was the driving culture as represented by our various cabbies: others felt driving in New York...

My friend Juha came from Finland to see me and wanted to try what it's like to travel without tour guides and tourist buses. So I took some time off from my university classes and we jumped on a bus and headed to the capital of Spain. Madrid struck us with the same astonishment I got the last time I was there. Madrid is situated in over 600 meters from the sea level like most of the central Spain. Is that what gives this city the feel of an anthill..? In the museum of modern art of Reina Sofia...
