La Loko means ‘the place’ in Esperanto. It is a project initiated and run by international artists Olof Olsson and Daniel Salomon. They are working with the language of Esperento, which was created by Ludwik Zamenhof in 1887 to be a neutral language which was easy to learn, so different speech communities could communicate instead of fight. This summer they were lobbying to make FIFA accept an international Esperanto football team. And just recently they launched a new non-national sausage company in Reykjavik. Kolbasoj sen Limoj is Esperanto and means ‘sausages without borders’. The company will make non-national sausages of the highest quality.

For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.

We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
