VIDEO: SHORT DOCUMENTARY: SOUND OF SÖRNÄINEN

Helsinki, Finland

w/ Apaja Alternative

2019

The Sound of Sörnäinen is a street art and multimedia work by the APAJA Collective, originating from the experiences of local people. What is the voice of Sörnäinen? How does it sound? The mural and its audial counterpart are an audiovisual interpretation of comments from taped interviews with passers-by in the street.

 

This mural has two superimposed sound waves, graphic fragments of these interviews. The upper wave is formed of the words ’Iron sound’, and the lower ’Urban romantic’. You can hear the collected thoughts on the Sörnäinen sound here or by interfacing with the QR codes embedded in the mural itself.

The documentray captures  moments and moods of the Apaja Collective in the making of Sound of sörnäinen.

The Sound of Sörnäinen mural was nominated for Rakentamisen ruusu 2019- architecture price.
