How it was?

Sami Ala

Four people who lived in the same apartment building at different times tell what it was like to live in the house. They tell about their apartment and the spaces they knew and the spaces they were aware of but never visited. Are all places, spaces ultimately mere states of mind?

I graduated as a painter in 2002. For the past 15 years, I have focused exclusively on video art. Often the starting point of my work is a text, either my own or someone else’s. My works have been exhibited in Finland, Europe, Asia and America.
