Crossing Continents #1
Artist, Finnish Regional Contact
WAFDust Podcast #11
Crossing Continents is a series of talks with artists and collaborators who have not only travelled to Black Rock City, but have set up regional outposts in their respective countries.
Our first guest is artist and Finnish Regional Contact, Anssi Laurila, part of a team who have injected a cultural slant to everything they’ve exhibited at Burning Man, ranging from folklore, education, and even a traditional sauna.
Anssi talks about the fruitful world of concepting projects in Helsinki, being inspired by the International Space Station, and how the collaborative nature of the Burning scene helped birth his first art project.
