Familiar Spaces – Helsinki

Klaus W. Eisenlohr, artist from Berlin, DE, gives insights into his visual research project “Familiar Spaces”. He has explored public places and urban space in the metropolitan area of Helsinki, aiming at a depiction of potential social and architectural constructions of urban space.

Also shown will be the results of the artist’s investigation for the “Star of Helsinki?” in the metropolitan area of Helsinki. For this ongoing quest, he is very interested in your responses, which will have influence on the final steps of his research project in Helsinki.
