NUPPU

A SCULPTURE ACTION BETWEEN ARTS, POLITICS AND SCIENCE
Nuppu is a sculpture in the shape of a bud. It contains natural seeds from a wide variety of plants, including trees.The project promotes innovation in the Arts, it prioritises sustainable life in the cities, and it supports knowledge about bio-diversity.
In 2007 visual artists Egle Oddo (Italy), Anu Miettinen (Finland) and Nastia Eliseeva (Russia), set up the Nuppu Group with the aim to create a public artwork that protects bio-diversity. They name the project nuppu, bud in Finnish, and they design a sculpture containing natural seeds from edible and non-edible species of plants, including trees, to be protected and ensured for the future of the planet.
Nuppu distributes alive seeds: the leafs of the sculpture open every two years and the seeds are distributed for free to any public/private individual/entity who offers to take care of them; new seeds are placed inside and the sculpture is sealed again. The opening of the sculpture during summer is the occasion for a public ceremony open to the public, with music and festivity.
Metsämiesten Säätiö has been a supporter in 2008 and 2009 and Kone Foundation in 2013.
