Road trip of wood PRD, first prototype
Maria01, Ruoholahti, Helsinki, June 2019
The so-far-mobile panel has moved – from its wheels – to be wall mounted. Maria01 is a growing-ground platform for start-ups. One could say, a businesscenter-like forum.

Here, the same type of panel as mentioned above (PRD) is colored by spray paint and a photo of a guitar has been added.
The very first proto work – the spray painting was not a success.
