This video from one of my Stanford assignments I made after returning to Finland. Now I finally also post it.
2 weeks are gone without a post here and that is not just because I am busy preparing many projects for Media Labs Spring Demo Day (May 29th at Taik in Helsinki, you are welcome to join!) but also because I have been in St. Petersburg/Russia for a long weekend. St. Petersburg was very nice […]
I have been quite here for a while now and besides being busy with finishing things up for Demoday (may 29th) there is another good reason: I’ve been in the US for the first time. Above there are the Urban Alphabets and Urban Postcards produced during the trip. Other than that we (4 mlab students) […]

I later build a “Digital Spray Can” as a prototype during Matti’s “Physical Interaction” course. project idea The City of Helsinki practices a zero-tolerance policy for street arts in the city’s public space resulting in a city […]
This is going to be the learning diary of the “Interface Prototyping” workshop that I took in school last week. We focussed on lofi-prototypes, which was very good for different reasons: (1) some hands on tasks and a lot of stuff we got done in just one week, (2) the awesomeness of drawing things by […]
I made some new urban alphabets in Berlin during the last week. I had a lot of fun and it’s pretty amazing how you start looking for letters everywhere. I also noticed myself switching into the “urban-alphabets-photo-taking”-mode as soon as I opened the app: I really don’t care stopping in the middle of the pedestrian […]
