Kristiina Korpela & Riikka Korpela (FI): Musical Contraptions

Only sounds remain and even they will disappear. A sound piece from the machinery workshop to the railway station. The state railway machinery workshop in Kuopio will be shut down by the end of the year. The Korpelas have preserved some of the workshop by means of recording sounds and by collecting artifacts and by taking pictures. In the station entry hall the sounds will sound together like they were music, by discussing with one another and by giving each other impulses.

Visual artist Kristiina Korpela and sound and lighting design student at the Theatre Academy of Finland Riikka Korpela will produce their environmental and communal piece together with employees of the state railway machinery workshop.
