The first year students
of Art Education took part in an environmental art project
called “Forest of Experience” The project was a part
of their course in Environmental Art and it took place at 7.-10.9.2004
in Köngäs, Kittilä.
Students were divided into five groups and each group was
given their own area in the forest to locate their work on.
The designing began with many different suggestions but the
final ideas came to groups when they got to the forest and
got to try out the materials.
All the works in the forest
are based that was based on stories about the spirits of
the forest, elfs, goblings etc. For excampel The Ambush of
Goblins (Hiitolan väijy)
is an enchanting work of art. Deceitfully beautiful, winding
the wanderer into the dark ambush, where the goblins will
him to be their slave. The piece merges well into the environment.
