Tiivistelmä

The weather diary

August 3, 1958 “It is just raining, the hay does not dry”
August 15, 1958 “We scythed the first field”

These extracts are from a typical weather diary that people kept, usually older generations, whose everyday life was led according to the cycle of the year. In the north, these diaries contained also broader, tacit knowledge of life around nature.

Our artwork got its inspiration from such weather diaries and started to get its form during our community art workshop in Enontekiö, Finland 2017. The working material was hay and the local community taught us when, how and why the hay should be processed.

In our piece we have explored the traditional knowledge about natural materials used in utility items and taken them into contemporary forms. We have studied the seasons of the year cycle to collect materials and kept a diary of the process.
