Sculpture of Helsinki #21
ROAR27 is the latest work by Jussi TwoSeven and can be found on the platform of Kamppi Metro Station. The exhibit space is operated by HAM Helsinki and features different artist depending on the current theme of the museum. Having art in public spaces is an excellent way to expand people’s horizons, allowing them to see something that they wouldn’t necessarily see.
Take a look at a time-lapse of the piece going up, youtube.com
I have explored and photographed the Helsinki Metro plenty of times over the years I have lived in the city.
You can find almost 500 outdoor sculptures, pieces of environmental art and historical monuments in Helsinki and they are accessible to everyone. See more and search through the database at HAMhelsinki.fi.

Beautiful photos. Makes me want to add Helsinki to the roster of systems photographed.
The city is definitely worth a visit. I would wait for the new stations and the west metro to open if you are particularly interested in photographing the metro. Thanks!
