I am extremely passionate about creative reuse of archives with strong research interests in the area. I have been an active participant of HACK4FINLAND sessions since its inception, experimenting with various approaches. I have a deep connection to architectures, museums, heritage of any city or village since a child.
Here is a link to a section of my online portfolio, that deals with archive materials. https://www.behance.net/gallery/1237405/Heritage-Archetypal-Design Two of the first examples in the link above are examples of creative reuse of archive material in the HACK4FINLAND hackathons.
Back in 2007 I sampled hundreds of Indian film scores from historical archives and realigned it to create a universal sound scorer - based on Jungian archetypes.
Since then I have always found interest in combining artefacts from the past, that have not been compressed and diluted or distorted from the market forces leading to today - and preserves spirit or essence in some way that adds aura to a proper remix.
My first attempt to remix archives https://vimeo.com/119874053 https://www.flickr.com/photos/avoinglam/16356777954/
Also this year I am one of 13 artists this year as part of the professional Swedish speaking theater field, and believe this hackathon would be a very valuable networking for me being from India with artists from Norway! http://www.lust.fi/2016/06/program-for-das2-published/ http://www.lust.fi/2016/07/deltagarna-for-das2-ar-valda/
I am a designer and currently in talks with the national public broadcasting corporation YLE to be able to officially reuse their cultural archives in order to develop a concept that explores Finland's shared identities with her neighbours such as Russia, Estonia, Sweden and Norway. Our first brainstorm session starts next week and I believe this event will be perfect timing in the natural course of artistic events around the them of geopolitics, GIS data and most importantly, the creative reuse of archives.
To attend the shadow wikidata and GISevent of 27th October, the main Hack 4 Norway competition on 28th October - 29th October 2016 and flying back on 2nd November from OSLO.
During the Hackathon I would like to work with a Norwegian geodata specialist to see how we can work together to merge archives with geodata that in new emerging, immersive spaces such as Virtual Reality. The same concept is being used to create possible prototype experiences with YLE, the Finnish public broadcaster. Ambitiously speaking, a successful outcome from both hackathons could find its way in both the Norwegian and Finnish museums.
The shadow event of Nordic open geo/map data meetup on 27th October 2016 would most likely facilitate this.
Intention is to combine coding, design and art skills to create something real and tangible at the end of the hackathon starting with GIS open data from Norway. I hopefully look forward to a scholarship that would help me to get to a legendary country like Norway.
