Association of Experimental Electronics (FI), MIM project (EE) and the Art & Sustaininility Workshop participants In the art and theatre worlds in general, the environmental impact of the use of various technologies is rarely talked about. However theater is wasting electricity live for light and sound, when visual art consumes most energy in the storage after it has been exhibited. The Self-sustainable party container is our attempt to search for new less harmful alternatives. Our aim is to build a set that will produce it’s own electricity, consist of mostly recycled materials and have a modular structure, so all parts can and will be used for something else after the festival. Our piece will work on wind, solar and muscle power of the participants. >> More information Located in front of Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art On view between March 25-28 Kiasma Opening Hours: Mon closed, Tue 10-17, Wed-Fri 10-20.30, Sat-Sun 10-18 *
