About Temporary (donate, please!)
Since September of last year, my day-to-day attention has been focused on Temporary, which we call a 'sandbox for practice-based research into experimental interactive formats’ in Helsinki.
I’m one of the initial organisers of the project, which we started to collect different approaches to culture production, specifically focusing on participatory, trans-disciplinary events. Rather than creating another art space or project space, our goal is to design a framework for cultural experimentation that attempts to decentralise the administration and responsibilities usually needed for such efforts.

A digital currency, called Temps (with the symbol Ŧ), that ‘pays’ people for actually showing up to the events;
An online proposal system for openly curating these events, where anyone can spend their earned Temps to support a proposal and therefore collectively choose the calendar based on demand/interest;
Open Time, where the Temporary space is open for anyone to show up, hang out, work on their own projects, etc. — operating, in theory, at all other times (24/7, hopefully) when there is not another event on the calendar.
