Cycle Path
28.5. – 8.6.2008
Galleria Huuto Uudenmaankatu

In the exhibition, I present a slideshow and photographs of a cycle path in Yliskylä, in Eastern Helsinki.

Yliskylä is a suburb built mainly in the 1970s and its regimented rows of buildings are broken up by long paths shared by cyclists and pedestrians alike. I am interested in the inevitable, slow-paced changes occurring in the urban landscape. People move, the weather and seasons change. All new additions to the built environment mould the landscape.

How can one grasp the passing of time? By taking photographs it is possible to record moments and point towards the changes taking place. Nevertheless, the continuous stream of those moments is like an infinite expanse of space, and it isn’t ever possible to capture all of time.

I want to thank Visek (Visuaalisen taiteen edistämiskeskus, ‘the centre for promoting visual arts’) for supporting the slideshow.
