ark magazine, photo notes:
in the helsinki region, a dispute centres on the master plan and proposals by officals to build new areas on the sea. seen from outer space, the borders made by people disappear and a large, uniforma, and for the present at least, uniformed landscape appears. the helsinki region and the archipelago formed by glaciation seen in a satellite radar image: settlement is white, the lakes are medium brown and the forests dark. the shade of the sea indicate changing wind conditions. the blue streak in the sea is a suspected oil spill. the city of helsinki is in the centre of the picture.
