Mustarinda

In the summer of 2013 I went to Finland for a two week residency at Art and Nature Centre Mustarinda. It is located at the outskirts of Paljakka Nature Reserve on top of the second highest hill in the Kainuu Region. It is surrounded by valuable old forests. The Mustarinda Association was established in 2009 by a group of Helsinki artists with the aims of preserving the diversity of nature and culture by bringing together artists, scientists, and people from various public and private organizations for discussions, seminars, exhibitions, residencies, and happenings.

Looking back on my stay, this is exactly what I took away from it. It was the first time I traveled on my own and my stay was pretty intens at times. But the inspiring people I met, and the unbelievable beauty of nature, left a meaningful and lasting impression.
