Stories of Warjakka

Augmented reality from Varjakka

Stories of Warjakka is a two-year project through which TaikaBox collects and presents tradition and stories related to the colourful history of Varjakka using art and new technology. The project was announced at Warjakan Bar & Grill on 1 December, 2018. The documentary shown at the launch presented stories of different stages of Varjakansaari: from a 19th century shipyard to one of the largest sawmills in the Nordic countries in the early 20th century and charcoal burning during the war. TaikaBox will bring augmented reality into Varjakka based on traditional stories.
