Returning from Anti festival. Our performances (four two hour long spring tours, one featuring local spring water advocate Sirpa Vuori) and the Water Bar during the event gala were well received. Our collaboration with Tea was smooth and were kindly supported by Thomas Berra. I particularly enjoyed the energy we channeled during the 6h Water Bar session. I completely lost myself to the work and we moved around our bar-table in unison – Staying concentrated on our individual tasks: Preparing cocktails from water which bar customers prompted from us. I think we served over 20 liters of drinks (half of which was from the Poukama spring).

Here is a recipe for Moon Mist which was one of the most coveted drink (Discarded Gravestone with Salt did well too). Moon Mists is the taste of the moon crust as it is presented on Geology of the Moon article. We used 2g of substance per 1l water (Carbonated with 65 bars of pressure to illustrate a spacecrafts entry on Earth). The mount feel was sandy.

  • Quartz stone powder (as a supply for silica) 50%
  • Soda-can tab shavings (Aluminum) 24%
  • Limestone (Chalk) 15%
  • Steel tool flakes (Iron) 7%
  • Hit of Magnesium oxide 7%
  • Touch of Titanium white paint (Titanium) 1%
  • Hint of Sodium oxide 1%

We also served: Tap from Genova (Multia spring seasoned with a big chunk of copper), Poukama Spring (raw unfiltered wild water), Faux S. Pellegrino (recipe here), Finlandia Hall Carrara (marble powder from Finlandia hall with Faux S. P.), Wäinö Aaltonen Travertine (travertine from Wäinö Aaltonen museum wall with Faux S. P.), Berlin Wall Carbonated (Ppowdered Berlin Wall with Faux S. P. and salt), Ammonoidea in Limestone (fossil powder with with Faux S. P. and chalk), Sokos Hotel Puijonsarvi Tap, Private Home on the Rocks, Distilled ’n Chilled and Discarded Gravestone with Salt

Also participated in a TAIKE seminar on Performance as Public Art (my contribution is available as a recording ) and before your shows I gave a short interview for Yle. (Edit:  I was told that spring-water restoration was discussed in Savon Sanomat in 17.11.20 and 22.11.20) A busy production and an intensive week. Currently working for Aalto university with Tina Madsen. We are teaching a course called Art, Environment, Education and has little over ten participants. Feels nice to teach. We will be experimenting with Deep Listening next week (as defined by Pauline Oliveros).
