This was a busy week for me! I had my Workshare in Senior Thesis on Monday, and my crit in Adv. Photo on Wednesday! So as you can imagine my brain is filled with thoughts. One of the most interesting thoughts/ suggestions that I got when I was in my Senior Thesis class was that I should somehow incorporate my love for advertising into my love for the history of Cincinnati, and photography. So with all of that being said and talking to some of my peers I was led to this artist named Pia Mannikko. She set up an environmental art exhibit all around her town of Jämsä in Finland. Over the period of six months she interviewed people of all ages and took their big important memories mapped them out all over the city and allowed the tourists and locals to enjoy the peoples’ memories along with them. Click on the photos below to learn more! I would love to know more about how she did it and I am interested in maybe starting a website promoting the history of Cincinnati, or doing something like this and putting up facts about the city’s history.
I am going to try to get in touch with her so see how she was able to do this. I will keep everyone updated!
