Alvila Home

Drawing: Sonja Jokiniemi


Alvila home project was part of Sonja Jokiniemi's work at Helsinki City Council, where eight artists were hired to work with community-based artistic practices and projects. Her at Alvila was about home: how we map out and perceive our intimate environment, what certain places or objects produce in us and what they propose. How do we arrange our realities based on the organization of the outside world?

From this work the team produced a lot of drawings and writing, which were then collected into a visual publication.
