Jury B Meets Heidi Fast's (Re)attuning Choir & Svop/t's Viewpoints

Waiting at the Kuopio University Hospital for the piece to begin.

With their unique vocal performance, Heidi and the choir lead us through the corridors of the hospital.

Jury B heads into the streets of Kuopio to find Svop/t's stairs.

Along the way, we find out that this is a strict no pooing and no peeing zone.

But who needs to climb stairs when you can climb a fence?

Jury B ends the day with a stop at the Festival Centre to have an artist talk with Tron (of Svop/t's) and Heidi.

Pekka Makinen and Brian Lobel's Purge

We started the day yesterday by blinging the van with magnets. This is the photo before we left. Some magnets may have found new homes along Kuopio's streets...

Pics from the van

After decorating the van, we began our first day of jury duty. Jury A braved the rain and set off on a mission to find Pekka Makinen's photographs. The photographs taken of the last decade at the ANTI Festival have been put up around Kuopio. It was difficult to understand what was happening in each piece without a write-up, so we took our best guesses at what we thought was going on and what the artists were trying to say.

After heading back to the school for lunch (fish chowder), we were off to Brian Lobel's Purge. Brian lost a lot of friends because of CCA. In Brian's words, "children are harsh".
