The Meeting Point. An introduction to how to sense and measure the world as we stand by the edge of the gulf.

Imagine immersing yourself in data as you discover the intricate architectures of environmental sensing that surround us.  The Environmental Audiotour takes us through different spaces and sites of Helsinki and Vallisaari, their past and future. Real and speculative stories unfold together with elemental forces in the extended urban environment, from water to air and from land to energy. The stories draw our attention to the ecological landscapes as we move through different ’islands’ in the city.

The Environmental Audiotour consists of six audiostories that can be experienced in the South Harbour near the Lyypekinlaituri (1st), in Vallisaari at the ruins of the old Weather Station (2nd), in Hietalahti (3rd), in the Kaisaniemi Botanical Garden (4th and 5th) and in Sörnäinen near the Uniarts Academy of Fine Arts – as well as online.
