The installation of artist-researcher Pekka Kantonen is a dialogue based on a YouTube channel that shows the Kantonen family’s video diary. The video diary began with daily footage in March 1990 and is updated in near real-time with new footage. It inevitably progresses as people, things, and places age, are destroyed, and disappear.
In addition to the exhibition, Pekka Kantonen will hold a streamed discussion on 10 June at 16-18. Theme of the discussion is Everyday microhistory on YouTube. Language is Finnish/English.
During the opening week, the Research Pavilion venue is open to public also on Monday 7 June 15-18.
