A MAJOR FUN BLAST!  Happening 2009

Only those things are beautiful which are inspired by madness and written by reason. Andre' Gide

Journalist Ene Vool, participant of the happenings: Aili Vint is so dedicated in injecting creative rush into people, that she can make even the most hardened cops to paitheir feelings spontaneously.. 

Aili Vint: Here's how you can win back your powerful at childhood.I invited the top businessmen and -women to the creativity course and asked them to get ready to meet a very important person. They came, in suits and ties, but as soon as they took out the paints the elegant businessmen and -women, the Movers & Shakers of our business world, suddenly became real artists, childish and carefree spirits! They bravely stepped beyond their professional boundaries, time constraints and habits. Even the fear of not knowing how to paint. - EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE!

AILI WRESTLING THE SEA Happening 2007



1. environmental happening in Estonia:"WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE RIVER!"  1987  

The Phosphorite War is the name given to a late 1980-ses in Northern Estonia, planned by the Moscow government. The movement, peaking in 1987, was successful in achieving its immediate goals, but is also regarded as a catalyst that led to the destabilization and dissolution of the Soviet regime in 1991

Aili Vint: It was a cold winter day when we heard that Soviet geologists and high government officials were holding a phosphorite-mining conference near the Keila-Joa falls. We were a group of artists, musicians, writers, and intellectuals and we decided to demonstrate our opposition to the Soviet Union's mining of phosphorite in Estonia by by creating some magic. We decided to unite fire and water at the falls! What right do they have to come and dig up our land! We'll show them how we feel! We bought all the candles we could and headed for Keila-Joa.

The falls were frozen into magnificent Ionian columns! We placed the lit candles into our footprints in the deep snow. As the footprints filled with pulsating light they looked like welcoming lamps in the twilight. It seemed as if they had a life of their own. We had enough candles for the frozen river under the falls, the top of the falls, and even the snowy banks. It was quite a sight in the gathering blue dusk! We stood in awe and deep silence. Suddenly the silence was broken when a Russian border-guard came and yelled at us demanding to know what we were doing. We answered: we are looking for the river! We decided to crash the final banquet of the conference and tell the Moscow officials (straight-faced) that they were under arrest and must come with us. We drove them to the falls

. Nagu me lähenesime, nägime, et kõik külmutatud langustel peegeldunud küünlad on lummavad. Üks ametnikest langes põlvili ja suudles mu kätt, öeldes, et ta ei ole kunagi näinud midagi looduses loodetult ilusat! Konverentsile tagasi tulles andsime neile teada, miks me olime nii kaevandusprojekti vastu. Nad ütlesid, et nad mõistavad, kuid järgisid ainult valitsuse poliitikat. Aga üks neist sosistas mind: teie ainus lootus on hoida vastuseisu! Nii et me pidasime vastu. Ja võitis!
