“Troubled waters” by Anni Piiroinen


Finnish landscapes have been profoundly shaped by extensive peatland drainage. In this project I try to understand what drainage has meant by focusing on disturbed watery relations. As ditches have been dug in the name of progress, water in and around mires has been rearranged in dangerous ways. In these troubled waters, new things are moving, new processes unfolding, and existing relations of care and survival come under threat.








Anni’s project was created in conjunction with the IHME Helsinki Commission 2022 course entitled Learning from Doubt. This project will be showcased in November. Follow this blog for more updates.
