Abstract

The animated drawing forming the video work is based on pupils visualization of Europe. In the animation, the author is recreating, interpreting and bringing together works from around 100 pupils from Northern Finland, Ireland, UK and Spain, who participated among over 600 children and youth in art education project in 2013. The aim of the project (Creative Connections, 2012–2014) was to explore European citizenship through contemporary art. The animation shows redrawn the visual representations, that the pupils used in their works. It starts from the general emblems the pupils used in many works: flags, maps, landmarks, EU stars and currency and continues to more concrete everyday things as products and food from different countries and sports connecting Europeans. The animation ends with pupils' personal memories, experiences and connections to Europe and the metaphorical visions of the situation in Europe. The animation is at the same time presenting in a form of an artwork the outcomes of visual analysis of pupils' artworks looking at their ways to relate to Europe.
