Experience the city as a reindeer. Hear about the reindeer’s way of life from Timo Jokitalo, Eeva Kemppi, Minja Mertanen and Veera Turunen, members of Other Spaces collective, then walk, quietly and collectively as a herd would, through Edinburgh. On your return, the materials and ‘data’ collected on the walk will be displayed to the public as an art piece, with the chance to ask questions of the organisers and participants.
This piece from Finnish live arts collective Other Spaces won the Finnish Environmental Art Piece of the Year in 2011 and has been has been taking its participants on a wayfaring experience through the semi-urban landscapes of today ever since. It opens up new ways to experience the city and its natural spaces, allowing the senses to sharpen as the group experiences the borderline between nature and human culture. Bring walking shoes, a backpack, a water bottle and clothes appropriate to the weather. No costumes!
