Scaling Perception
By Anton Poikolainen Rosén

An individual perception exercise that suggests ways to zoom out and zoom in when seeing, smelling, hearing, and touching nature. Visitors can take a brochure with prompts and perform the exercise freely in the Lapinlahti surroundings. There will also be a limited selection of “perception tools” to play with – devices that change, amplify, and distort our human perception. Borrow one and see how it changes what you notice. Each exercise takes 15-30 min and can be performed anytime throughout the festival.

Experience the Future: Soil Sensing Rings
By Anton Poikolainen Rosén

Experience how it might be to work with soil care in 2040. This interactive installation simulates the use of rings that sense nutrients in the soil and present this data as sound. Do you dare to stick your fingers in the soil and discover what it sounds like? You can participate in an optional interview afterward to contribute to research on the design of future sustainable technologies.
