Struve Arc, Trip 1: Mustaviiri Island

Uncategorized December 14, 2015

A few images from today’s start to the series of trips planned for one of my MA graduation projects about the Struve Geodetic Arc. Over the next few months, I’ll visit each of the six nominated original triangulation spots in Finland maintained as part of its status as a UNESCO World Heritage sites. Along the way, I’ll be collecting geological samples, taking notes and images on my trusty Hassy 503cx. I’ll then make a series of commemorative stone sculptures – one for each site – in a relevant type of local Finnish stone, all of which will be exhibited here in Helsinki in June, 2016.
