Notions of the City; Notes on a Place
My work Notions of the City; Notes on a Place consists of observations and thoughts about the city thru the eyes of one protagonist, me. I try to question and challenge my ways of seeing and experiencing my immediate surroundings, the city I live in, Helsinki, Finland. I want to break my everyday patterns. To avoid the obvious route from one place to another. To pay attention and give weight to the seemingly meaningless. To see what I have missed. To wonder at the behaviour of fellow citizens as well as my own. The aim is to take hold of my surroundings, to step out and see instead of looking.
