The project starts on 5 October with an open call to attend a workshop at Oodi in January 2021. The workshop will develop ideas for interactive documentary animation and support their implementation. Documentary animation offers a chance to challenge the boundaries of storytelling. It combines stirring topics with narrative methods on the level of technology, visuality and content.

A presentation of the project will be held in Maijansali Auditorium in Oodi on 8 October at 18:00–20:00. Artists Emily Gobeille and Theo Watson (US) from Design I/O will talk about their art and works. Their VR art projects have been presented in public spaces such as libraries.

Rhizome Project by Other Spaces introduces schoolchildren to bodily learning at Tehtaankatu Comprehensive School26.10.2020 13:26:32 EETPress release

A new work of art to be implemented with the Percent for Art principle has been started in Helsinki involving the pupils and staff of Tehtaankatu Comprehensive School for the next two school years. Rhizome Project by the Other Spaces collective is a series of experiential and bodily workshops at the school. The workshops look at the idea of the rhizome through various rhizomatic structures and phenomena occurring in the environment, such as mycelium, the internet, vaporisation or even the formation of language. Through these concrete rhizomatic phenomena, the series of workshops familiarises the pupils with non-hierarchical models of thinking, learning and organisation, where diversity, movement and free association are emphasised.

Projektet Rhizom, som leds av kollektivet Toisissa tiloissa, introducerar eleverna i lågstadieskolan Tehtaankadun ala-asteen koulu till kroppsligt lärande26.10.2020 13:23:34 EETTiedote

I Helsingfors har ett nytt verk som genomförs enligt procentprincipen påbörjats och i vilket eleverna och personalen på lågstadieskolan Tehtaankadun ala-asteen koulu deltar under de två följande läsåren. Toisissa tiloissa-kollektivets projekt Rhizom är en serie experimentella och kroppsliga verkstäder i skolan. I verkstäderna undersöker man rhizomens, det vill säga mycelens, idé genom olika strukturer och fenomen i omgivningen med mycelstruktur, till exempel svampmycel, internet, förångning eller uppkomsten av språk. Med hjälp av olika konkreta fenomen med mycelstruktur introducerar verkstäderna eleverna till icke-hierarkiskt tänkande, lärande och inordnande i modeller med fokus på mångfald, rörelse och fri association.

Toisissa tiloissa -kollektiivin Rihmasto-hanke tutustuttaa koululaiset ruumiilliseen oppimiseen Tehtaankadun peruskoulussa26.10.2020 13:20:14 EETTiedote

Helsingissä on aloitettu uusi prosenttiperiaatteella toteutettava teos, johon osallistuvat Tehtaankadun peruskoulun oppilaat ja henkilökunta seuraavan kahden lukuvuoden ajan. Toisissa tiloissa -kollektiivin Rihmasto-hanke on kokemuksellisten ja kehollisten työpajojen sarja koulussa. Työpajoissa tarkastellaan rihmaston ideaa erilaisten ympäristössä esiintyvien rihmastollisten rakenteiden ja ilmiöiden, kuten sienirihmaston, internetin, kaasuuntumisen tai vaikkapa kielen muodostumisen kautta. Konkreettisten rihmastollisten ilmiöiden avulla työpajasarja tutustuttaa koululaisia epähierarkkisiin ajattelun, oppimisen ja järjestäytymisen malleihin, joissa korostuvat moninaisuus, liike ja vapaa yhdistely.
