13th Woodstock was held in Hyvinkää once again in rain feared weather. Whole week had been great weather but few hours before first band the rain started. Oh well, luckily the sun come out after second band and party started. For me this was third year in the festival and in my opinion this was the best year, because of the bands. All were talented and played whole scale of different genres. This year bands were: Kohisevat Voxit, Welcome To My Dreams, Samuli Mikkola Band, Strawberry Love Band and YÖ.
During the few months I have been involved in few projects. I have been photographer, sound designer, teacher and student. In field of photography, I attended the TEDxOtaniemi project that was 12.5 in Design factory, Aalto University in Espoo. The topic was learning and education. The speakers were amazing and had very interesting point of views. If you are interest more about the event go www.tedxotaniemied.com to check out more.
In studies I have now spend 14 weeks to learn the basic of programing language Java. I have learned lot and now I have strong basics and I really want to learn more. I have heard many to say that Java is good to learn but not that fun. What you think? I have not really looked other languages so I thing it’s ok.
I mentioned few posts ago about the photography exhibition in Kerava. Now that it’s over I give you sneak peak the look of the place. So I was helping to create the video portraits by putting those together, color correcting and few needed some masking.
I took my brothers and his partner prom photos and in my opinion they came up pretty well. There supposed to be few others also but they never showed up. This was quite simple two flash setup in both sides.
It was day two in Lyhty for me, when Pekka Elomaa toke me and few other workker to Kerava art and museo centre. I was confused and had no idea what the are planning, some kind of photography exhibition probably.
Well weeks went and I forgot the whole trip and focused my actual work. One tuesday Pekka asked me, if I could help him with one video project and of course I helped. Well things went well, we created the and year later we have photography exhibition in Kerava with videos I helped to create. And today is the opening day!
Thank you Pekka that you took me to work with you and the gang.
Noniin nyt on sitten sivari ohi ja ontto kohta kalenterissa. Vuosi meni paljon nopeammin ja paljon ehti tapahtua ja sattua. Olen erittäin tyytyväinen että valitsin sivarin ja pääsin suorittamaan sitä lyhtyyn. Kiitos siis Kulttuuripajan porukalle!!!
Nyt sivarin jälkeen on monet kysynyt oliko sivari hyvä vaihtoehto. No omasta mielestä sivari pystyi antamaan enemmän kuin armeeja, ainakin minulle. Pääsin tutustumaan ja työskentelemään kehitysvammaisten kanssa, joka aikaisemin oli hyvin tuntematon alue itselle. Vuoden työskentely avasi silmiä ajattelemaan uusilta näkökulmilta monia asioita. Esimerkkinä vaikka kuinka ”rajoittunut” itse välillä voi olla. Monet henkilöt joiden kanssa työskentelin olivat erittäin itsevarmoja ja eivät kainostelleet kysyä asioita joka askarrutti tai kiinnosti heitä. Itse opin heiltä varmuutta ja uteliaisuutta. Voisin jopa väittää että vaikka olin ohjaavassa asemassa opin heiltä uusia asioita enemmän kuin he minulta. Tietysti vuorovaikutus on selvä, yleensä oppilas oppii opettajalta.
Haluan kiittää vielä kerran Kulttuuripajan väkeä, onnea Pertti Kurikan Nimipäiville UMK karsintoihin, Lyhdyn hekilöitä ja erityiskiitos kanssasivareille jotka olivat aivan mahtavia!
The sivil servise for me have been so hectic so the blog have been on hold for while now. After this all comes to end I will start posting new photos and videos and everything but for now let’s have a magical new year!
Lyhtys Kulttuuripaja wants to say their opinion and wishes of the Christmas:
With my budget Monaco, Cannes and st. Tropez were in way out to enjoy fully. Everything cost so much from clothes to food. But at lucky the cityscape didn’t disappoint. The Alps in other hand were beautiful, with rapids and … Lue loppuun →
