In the next weeks our two year work process in the Turku archipelago will culminate in the filming of four short science fiction films. Basing on web questionnaires and face to face interviews we mapped islanders´worst and best case scenarios about the future of the archipelago. Basing on those interviews 3 workshops were held at Utö, Houtskär and Korpo. The workshops produced  different science fiction film ideas portraying bleak or optimistic (or both) visions of the archipelago of Turku after 100 years. Filming will begin in May 20. More then 100 locals will act in the films.

Archipelago Science Fiction is a collaboration between Tellervo Kalleinen, Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen and Henrik Andersson. It is part of an ambitious  art exhibition CONTEMPORARY ART ARCHIPELAGO, opening June 18 2011 around Turku Archipelago. Curators are Taru Elfving and Lotta Petronella.
