What I felt: euphoria. Waiting for a miracle.

On 1st August, 2008, Mireia C. Saladrigues invited 100 visitors to observe 5 species of animals – white-handed gibbon, icebear, marten, owl and liger  – in the Zoo of Novosibirsk. The moment was special – the moon was going to eclipse the sun during a hot Siperian summer day. Here are the 85 of the observations of the participants, written on Zoolar Eclipse postcards and returned after the eclipse.hypolates-lar_01.08.08_18

The drawnings and texts written by artist have been compilated into a binded book,  available here. The book and the drawnings were exhibited for the first time in Kiasma Mediatheque during the spring 2009.
