Helped in broadcasting(?) and managing a Frame event Merpersons: Disability, accessibility, gender and art together with Kalle Kuisma / M-Cult. The event was on Zoom.app from where we streamed it to youtube. We made the stream from a client-machine which was a guest at the event (instead of using the inbuilt Zoom.app yt arrangement) to make the online event more secure (we were prepared to drive “blocking footage” to the public stream if the session would have been compromised). The stream faced a few technical glitches but in general everything run smoothly.  I think Kalle is onto something with the idea of showing “locational footage” as a part of the Zoom session (in between talks on breaks etc.)! The event had a strong community TV vibe. The next event we’ll work on is on the 5th of May.

The water as artistic practice talk (at 2h 23 min) with Marianne Savallampi, Tuuli Malla & Rag Elnyg was really cute but they didn’t discuss water directly. Pollutants and mutations were referred to in a borderline positive light which reminded me of Toxic Progeny: The Plastisphere and Other Queer Futures (2015) Heather Davis.
