Minna Parikka "did you myspace me?"
Suomenlinna island fortress
angel shoes
Toy Museum (on island): genius idea that old toys are more beautiful than modern ones (plastic, electric-onic), details and attention to details + fragility (importance of education of - )
old toys: not perfect! broken noses, difformities... => being used to this, modern issue, artificial perfection too easy. ~ old writing, calligraphy.
+ modern materials, artificial. Nowadays, Toys (dolls) are not repaired anymore.
+ end of transition fabric/clothes/toys, all is plastic.
other ideas: Finnish symbology:
circle
red dot (red: what contrasts on snow)
military museum,
super cute houses. Open prison (=real prison?)
800 residents on the island, 350 permanent jobs.
Cafe Chapman. strange life of being always melted with tourists, curious and wandering!
