Touch the Unreachable
2010

The Touch the Unreachable concept is an application designed for the museum environment and aims to promote knowledge of Finnish cultural heritage. The experience helps the visitor to understand how Finnish figurative communication identity was build at the end of the 19th century and how the same illustration traditions are still in use during our time. 

Through doing and experimenting the visitor builds up her own understanding of how the Finnish image identity was built at the end of 19th century. The journey follows historical facts and chronology during 1899-1900 in Finland and Paris. Wemmeri and Ludzia (the tutor and antagonist characters) follow the visitor’s movements throughout the journey and actively participate in his/her actions. Advisor: Mika 'Lumi' Tuomola.
