Kirsi Reinola`s six-part TV documentary series for YLE about Finnish media artists is presented as an installation during the festival at Lasipalatsi in Helsinki next to Bio Rex. The series presents a variety of the different technologies, styles and eras of media art approached with common sense and humour. Episodes include either the whole works or clips and documentation for the works. The main focus is in the art works and the artists thoughts about media art in general.
The series shows, for instance, Anssi Kasitonni filming his space musical at Kuhmalahti Workers’ Hall, Mika Taanila running the Expanded Pori live performance with numerous projectors and Marjatta Oja experimenting projections in her studio. The first episodes are broadcasted also at Yle Teema TV channel starting from Wednesday, March 26. The series has been produced by Silva Mysterium Oy, together with the Finnish Art Association.
