Since our last post, a lot has been happening behind-the-scenes here at 17000 Islands.
Check out this intro video to get a taste of what’s in store!
The project has been nominated for the Innovation Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest! We will have an installation launch at the festival and, for the first time, people will be able to interact with the project at the festival.
At Sheffield, 17000 Islands can be viewed from 10:00 – 17:00 in the Cross Over Lounge throughout the festival.

We (Thomas, Edwin & Paramita) have been invited to CPH:DOX to present a sneak preview of 17000 ISLANDS followed by a panel discussion. The panel, Case studies – An Interactive Audience, will be moderated by Annika Gustafson. Asta Wellejus will also present two of her projects.

WHERE: Cinemateket, Gothersgade 55, 1123 Copenhagen, Denmark
MORE INFO & TICKETS
We are excited to screen our first test-user film made by Finnish director Elina Talvensaari (How to Pick Berries), during the presentation.
On the occasion of this panel, director Thomas Østbye and graphic designer Daniel Butler has come up with a fantastic idea to create an INTERACTIVE POSTER promoting our project. It is only apt that an interactive project should be interactive all the way!
Here’s what the poster looks like. Tell us what you think. If you’re in Copenhagen this week, make sure to “add” your islands to our poster. Also, click a photo to tell us which Island is yours and share it on our Facebook Page.
We (Thomas, Edwin & Paramita) will all be attending, so come and say hello if you’re there.
POSTER WITH SOME ADDED “ISLANDS”
“ISLAND” STICKERS WAITING TO BE USED
Today we are launching both the microsite and a facebook page for our new project, 17.000 ISLANDS. To kick off this exciting day, as we’ve been intensely working on the project for the past year, we invite you to explore and read more about the project here. Stay tuned for updates coming soon!
