Underskog (Underwood) is a blogging community about (sub)cultural events. The idea is simple; people post events, the posts can be read on the front page sorted by the hour. By combining events and place (in this case mainly Oslo) with social software, community members can see which events others would attend. In this way you find the experimental puppet theater or art show that you would otherwise not have found. Underskog has several thousand participants -you cannot join the community, but you can harvest information. Brilliant idea!

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”
