Say hi to Venice

At the bus terminal in Kamppi you can find a pretty special box. The “white box” is an art project of Ville Hara and Anu Puustinen. Their goal is to get Venice and Helsinki closer together and allow visitors at Kamppi to have a peak at Venice Biennale.

There are two of those boxes put up – one in Kamppi and one at the Nordic exhibition "Light-Houses: On the Nordic Common Ground" in Venice. The two boxes are connected via video call connection. So standing in front of the box you can not only see what is going on in Venice but even get in contact with the people in the exhibition.

Try it out yourself! It’s fun!
