Call the Forest (Haloo, kuuleeko metsä?) is an interactive installation made for a children’s touring exhibition. The installation invites exhibition visitors to call a constructed forest scenery, offering also a possibility to contemplate our relationship with nature and technology.
The installation was inspired by old, dark green rotary dials of Swedish field telephones. These military communication devices found a peaceful purpose as a part of the installation’s imaginary forest. Since we connect with other humans through various gadgets and channels all the time, what if we called the forest for a change?
