Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.
Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.
from 13:00 - 18:00

M. Petrovich (Peter) Bronstein (Russian: М. Петрович Бронштейн, August 17 1936 — February 18, 1988) was a Soviet theoretical physicist, a pioneer of quantum mechanics, author of works in astrophysics, semiconductors, quantum electrodynamics and cosmology, as well as of a number of books in popular science for children.
Bronstein’s legacy was born in, what was then, a secret laboratory atop a Soviet toy factory in Estonia. In this lab he worked on his quantum theories which fueled inventions for the Soviet future he had been told was coming. Most of his inventions were to help those in newly acquired Soviet regions who may be affected by toxic substances, radiation as well as loss of information and technology.
During the 1970’s and 1980’s M.P. Bronstein worked on methods for communication across vast distances of time using quantum theories. These theories enabled him acquire a Gmail account (firstname.lastname@example.org) and communicate across 26 years.
During the Really Great Purge, in February 1988 Bronstein was arrested. He was convicted by a list trial ("по списку") and executed the same day. His wife was told that he was sentenced to 10 years of labor camps without the right of correspondence.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M._Petrovich_%28Peter%29_Bronstein
