This week we were honored to take part in the 24-hours.in project, an interactive web-installation powered by Richard Vickers and James Field from the University of Lincoln, UK.
After a short briefing from Richard and series of technical problems, we went out there with the new PureView cell phones, in the typical Finnish cold, to document our life in Tampere as it is.

Rabbits in the shower, two Asian girls on a bike, old Finnish folks taking a bath in the lake, construction sites in action and many other new scenes, filmed by IMP students, can be seen now at the 24-hours.in website. The project basically gives the audience a chance to see the city from another angle, from a point of view that you won’t necessarily see in tourist brochures or postcards.

For us, IMP students, it was very nice kickoff for Mindtrek, and it was a pleasure to work with Richard. Most importantly, the project evoked some thoughts in our minds - what is an installation? Does it have to be physical, or maybe nowadays the web is a new virtual platform for people to reach and create new art? Decide for yourself.
