Art in the Science Park car parks
In 2021, Turku Technology Properties organised a project to bring the Science Park car parks to life. The goal was to use art to transform the car parks under BioCity and DataCity into more comfortable, inviting, and interesting spaces.
26. "Astronautti ja lamppu" Joona Huotari & Juha Welling, 2021 BioCity -2
The astronaut in the painting has gotten lost in a strange place: He was supposed to admire his country's flag, but he got lost on the beach under a street lamp. The idea of the work is the feeling of smallness, which connects an astronaut in space and anyone in a foreign place.
28. "Sisimmän kuiskaus" Mirja Vihersalo, 2021 BioCity -2
The poem reminds us of the importance of stopping and listening to ourselves. A daily commute, the rush of world events, the desire for approval or fear of rejection can easily conceal our own inner voice and authenticity, regardless of how vital they are to us.
46. "Human Behind the DigiDigi" Venla Huhtinen, 2021 DataCity
The background pattern is inspired by a circuit board, whose shape is reflected in the work. The work demonstrates the role that humans play in the creation of technology and reminds viewers that there is a real, living, breathing human behind all technology.
51. "Siivet" Samuli Metsänranta, 2021 DataCity
The door of the stairwell connects to the fictional part of the painting, and the wings reflect the exit from the parking area. The part that extends behind the corner of the painting adds more dimension to the painting as a whole, and the truck blends into the wall surface.
