Chapter II: Fabulous! Great! Amazing!
Keywords: life, confusion, progress, proletariat, racism, food terror, freelancer, begging
The multidisciplinary work is a fictional tale about alternative possible future where future proletariat is fiercely seeking for handlebars to grasp to stay aside from the constant economical insecurity. It might create a document of current way of dealing assets among large amount of baby birds that wish to get a load of puke from their eternally returning mother. These experiences shall be donated to the deepest cave in Finnish base rock among all the global nuclear waste that is welcomed to be hosted during our endless flight towards new stars.
This work was initiated by Flamboyant Tahini Enterprises. It was commissioned and bought as part of 1917 collection and adjusted to fit 1947 glory.

Q: How does it feel to be under construction?
A: Actually quite nice.
Q: Can you tell me why?
A: Well when something is not finished, there are still space for additions. But as I decide that I am ready, I have to hold what I have.
Q: What do you mean with that?
A: I enjoy the unfinished quality, the work in progress mentality, maybe even the idea that I will never be ready. Therefore I am always under construction. I want to refine the structure to the finest detail with time and even forget that I was doing something.
Q: But how about the ever increasing costs of the project?
A: I have spent a fortune and I will spend another.
How to start a Progress Bar?
AP: "how is your German progressing?"
It is not a shame to be under construction along with these projects. We all reach for the sky!
According to some estimates, Bad Research could be the most expensive data structure in the world, [no need for citation] even more expensive than the secret data collection of Swiss truth seeker scientist Fritz Basel.

Bad Research: Let’s Make France Great Again
For two week Bad Research has the will to experiment on a performance that has characteristics of a pseudo-academic, economic self-help presentation. We will arrive with a mission that will be executed during the stay in the city. The mission is totally fictitious and the course of the storyline will be influenced by the discoveries, stories and the people who we meet, which will be integrated as part of the story as events, truths, and fictitious characters.
We are top class consultant alliance of Finnish and Israeli business thinking. We do bad research and we consult our partners. We build ideas. We want to share our ideas with our business associates. We have you and your country in our mind. We have witnessed that your country is not free anymore. We approach you with a great offer: we produce you an unforgettable life-changing experience — a presentation how to liberate your country from raging “intellectuals” that has caused your country to gradually lose its reputation as a blissfully ignorant country. They argue that the world is not black and white! We have noticed that many other countries have accepted that there is not space for wise people in governing positions, so called “intellectuals” who want to dictate our moral, ethics and prevent our freedom to do whatever we want as liberated consumers. We need to reshape the history and turn off the lamp of Age of Enlightment.
The transformation begins with you! Yes from the individual! You first need to become dumb to encourage other people around you to get dumb too. And soon everyone is dumb together. Your city can be the pioneer of the new age. Don’t worry. We will show you how and we will write the instructions for the prosperous future. Let’s make France great again!
The work is created and written within the fine borders of public space and stage. The public space works as a source of inspiration as we engage with site and local people through interventions, conversations, or by doing site-specific research. The activities on stage will work as a conclusions of the research and unifying the transdisciplinary approaches and multitude of material. It has the characteristics of real-life event that is hoax but pretends to be real where we guide interaction through playing our fictitious roles and we gather input from spectators. The results of the work is open and it is totally acceptable, if the initial plan changes to something else during the period. So called "research" will be made available as a separate internet page as "an interactive scroll" to lighten up the motives and the backgrounds of the fictitious world where we are moving and creating. We are putting ourselves on the stage, and we include the world around us to be part of the comedy we create. It is a collection of banal anecdotes and surprises. Work is not meant to be cohesive, but rather complex and requires effort from spectator to get lost in to the world of bad research. The documentation of the performances and interventions become part of the overall story.

Bad Reaserch: Ratakatu 12
Ex-president of Israeli Secret police, Kyösti Cohen, has betrayed his country and escaped to Fin- land. He holds a long time lost evidence about most horrifying terrorist attack in the human history of terror. The information he is about to reveal is the scriptures about the case: Sampo שמש Sam- mas Shemesh - Towards the New Temple, where confused and delusive Finnish eco-terrorist Aya Hauska tries to terrorise everyday life of Israel by planting a tree in Jerusalem in good faith to give a birth to a new religion. According to Fritz Basel, 99-year old creationist scientist from Switzerland, everything is still ne in Israel and the sediments of the great ood can be still found, if eyes are kept happily closed, although the terrorist attack was seriously affecting the local biodiversity causing a birth to a new form of psychosis. Most of the authorities are still asleep.
The scriptures are about to be displayed for the rst time in its exhaustive authority near Finnish secret police headquarters. This incident serves as curious sneak peak into world and motives of a terrorist organisation. Nobody is sure whether this is just an exhibition or an attempt to recruit more members to a terrorist party or a trap by Finnish secret police to gather suspicious information about new possible radicals. And most of all nobody knows whether Kyösti is a secret agent spying Finnish assets or he is another con-artist with his Finnish business associate?
We propose two weeks exhibition time. Preferred months April, May, July. Others negiotable.
The gallery space will be furnished into a terrorist headquarters with green coloured balloons, cam- ou age, 18 kg of tahini, and proper propaganda audiovisual material provided by the Eco-terrorist. The scripture containing the research material of the events of Sampo שמש Sammas Shemesh — Towards the New Temple will be hung the walls. People are invited to join the terrorist party. Several related performances will be held during the exhibition.

Bad Reaserch: Two Many Flew Over Cuckoo Nest
We are two ex-generals, now happily retired, fought several wars, and waiting to die due there was not a bullet or bomb wise enough to hit us. We have come to share you our experiences of war. We have no real experience due we have always been fighting from behind consoles and tv screens. Our trauma is distant imaginary trauma. We have no real understanding of war, but our actions have been causing war. Our way of life and our will to protect our way of life causes war behind our backs, somewhere else, according to 99-year-old Swiss creationist scientist Fritz Basel.
We will sit and tell you how we feel. We will invite you to tell us, due we are also well known psychol- ogist researchers, about your trauma. We will interview you and draw pictures about your struggle. We will make videos about this madness. We will write music about your haunting memories and we will compose all this into a scroll that will be part of our significant Bad Research series. This scroll contains hot well crafted fake truth.
We will explore the public space, talk with people and ask them to describe their imaginary trauma about war. We will finnd like real private investigators a real person who has ed from war and let her describe us how it is. She or he will put us to experinence that hell. All this will be distilled into a form of a performance and exhibition where collected and created material will be exhibited. We will create a situation that we conduct and ask participants to spend time with us. It hopefully will be a traumatic experience.
This work is heavily inspired by the place where it is executed.

Bad Researchers found new evidence about intelligent life
Yes can you imagine it! The new discovery shows that there is some thinking activity happening somewhere else than here. The shocking results were found using a new innovative tool. The image shows differences in activity spread around measured area. The culinary specialist Ernesto Narinski remarks that the new evidence could be catastrophic for the current way of life. More information was never released about the case.
A few moments later the same group of scientist executed much more closer observations of the presented image and they realised that it was an unidentified portion of food that they enjoyed for lunch. Lead researcher of PJF commented the mambo jambo surrounding the case and negative publicity: "The research goes on although the constant failures and deep disappointments can tighten the belt of a dog. Luckily nobody heard about this."
Tahini uprise scaring the shit out of other food products!
"We have no respect for food portions that don't include tahini!", says the spokesperson of Sissyhood of Angry Tahini (SAT). There are at least seven food nations that has been excluded already from the plate within the first week of uprising. The reporters might stop following the uprising due to increasing restrictions of freedom of speech in enlightened countries. The Prime Minister has already ordered the Inquisition to be reformed that unnecessary messengers could be taught a valuable lesson of law and order.
