Event 2

2/5: GROW | A growing installation in three parts (‘Stitch your dreams’/’Grow’/’Harvest dinner’)

20th – 27th of September 2010 | School of Design and Art, Aalto University, Helsinki

What do people dream about?

I invited students from the local Design and Art school to think about their true hopes and dreams about life and work and stitch them into a tablecloth. What are desirable work futures? What is the role of the artist? Where is our profession heading?
During a participatory stitching afternoon, supported by Anarchistic Martta Sari, students employed different ways to express their dreams. The resulting tablecloth became part of a growing installation – cress seeds sown on top of it grew within 5 days into an edible green field which was harvested by students and teachers during the closing dinner of the event.
