  • MARIUS MONKAM CAMEROON

    My name is Marius MONKAM, Cameroonian visual and new media artist , during the last 5 month of residence in the art centre Saksala ArtRadius , I was working on an interactive project which topic was
    “my environment and me”,
    the project was the realization of an interactive CD-ROM with the aim to show tourist places of the region of Haukivuori base on their history by combining visual art and (interactive media art)

    I want to discover another culture different from mine
    I want to perform my art
    I like to bring my contribution to the valorization of touristy places
    I would like to support later African young artist which are abandon to them selves without any support.
    I think the Saksala ArtRadius can be a good place for me to develop my artistic project

    Realizing an interactive and educated cd rom on all the touristy places of the region.
    The theme of my plan is “MY ENVIRONMENT AND ME “

    Mon choix pour cette residence d´artiste Saksala ArtRadius

    J´ ai choisi cette residence d´artiste pour plusieurs raisons notement,
    Pouvoir rendre mon art utile, en l´appliquant á une activité socio-éducative et culturelle , pouvant être utile pour les habitants de la region dans laquelle se trouve le centre artistique.
    Réaliser une œuvre qui allie à la fois plusieurs champs disciplinaires à savoir artistique, social et culturelle
    Pouvoir devellopper mon art , afin de le rendre un jour utile pour mon pays
    Rencontrer et échanger les experiences avec d´autres artistes du monde de différentes cultures et de differentes nationnalités.
    Participer aux festivals, compétions, rencontres et autres évenemts artistiques en rapport avec mon art.

    Comment j´ai connu la residence Saksala ArtRadius

    J´ai connu cette residence par internet à travers le site Resartis

    Mon experience dans cette residence d´artiste
    Je suis plutôt satisfait de mon niveau artistique actuelle car il a nettement augmenté , ceci est due au fait que tout est mis en œuvre au centre pour que les artistes travaillent dans les bonnes conditions, atelier, outil de travail,connection internet, hebergement ,nutrition ;mais il reste tout de même quelques améliorations á apporter pour rendre éfficasse la création des œuvres médiatiques notement la creation d´un atelier mutimedia professionnel, d´un systeme pour la presentations des œuvres multimédias quand elles sont achevées, et d´un projecteur vidéo pour les artistes qui font dans la vidéo.

    Presentation du projet sur lequel je travaille
    1) présentation globale du projet et intérêts du projet
    Le projet à pour but principal de créer un rapprochement entre les habitants de la régions et leur milieu environnemental en réalisant un outil multimédia éducatif et interactif qui présentera la région, les sites touristiques,l’historique de chaque sites, les personnes âgées auteurs de ses .

    The objective of the project was:
    to create a linkage between the local populations and their environmental medium so that they become aware of the importance of the medium in which they live and give more attention to all what is going on around them.
    - to promote this region inside and outside the country of Finland so that people can know that there is a village in Finland so called Haukivuori , where it is located , what kind of activity is going on there, the beauty of the landscape and more especially the history of tourist places, because it is important that when a tourist visits a place of interest, he should know which are the most important places to visit , why those places are so important and why they are different from other similar places that they can find anywhere in the world
    - Interdisciplinary ; this project was thought to be done on a base of multidisciplinary by combining several disciplines, visual art (painting and drawing) , new media ( the building of the interactive cd-rom using graphic design , computer graphic , flash animation) , social (with several contact with the population ) languages , using many language for the project ( French , English, and Finnish ;the Finnish version of the project is not yet ready , depending of the support I can received I will see how to conclude it)
    - Learn and research online

    In general I can say that my objectives is not achieved exactly at 100% but the principal aim is reached.
    For this exhibition the 5 continents in Saksala ( 20.03.-23.4.2006) I will present my interactive project (the explored region and places of the project are: Saksalanharju maisema, Saksala Art Radius, Martin Galleria, Kirkonkylän kyäraitti, koskentila ja Nykälänkosket, pitkäniemen kalliot, Iso-Naakkima, kraaterijärvi, kapustasalmen maisema, kerovuoren aarnialue, kirrko-ja kellotapuli, Hauki-Halli, I have built also in this project a small game space (Haukivuori game zone) with three kind of games; sauna game, bicycle game in summer time and snow scooter in winter. I will also present my paints , and graphics works on the theme “ my environment and me “.
