About City Breaks
Minna Suoniemi, Jan 2005



En Route

Minna Suoniemi approached London, for her a completely new city, with a focus on how the locals inhabit their own environment. She attempted to map and make sense of the city by observing the routines, routes and rhythms of being in this urban space. She was drawn to the different ways people make space for themselves in the public realm and, for example, try to justify their uncomfortable inaction in it when forced to pause and wait. The speed of constant movement and the charged stillness of stopping appear as specific to London yet also touch on shared codes and conventions of urban dwelling.
