Re:Peat is a Fulbright Finland Fellowship research project by visual artist Anne Yoncha and science researchers Oili Tarvainen, Anne Tolvanen, and Anna-Liisa Välimaa of Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke). The research aims to explore the often-hidden structure of peat and provide a new perspective on how we perceive and value post-industrial landscapes.
