IT TAKES a lot of people and a lot of trust to make a set of events, and write co-created nonfiction zines together. I want to acknowledge those who shared their time and stories with DK and Atelier S P A C E in Finland June-August 2018. This wouldn’t have been possible without them. Many warm thanks for the great conversations to: Eveliina Karsikas, Kathelijne Adriaensen, Asta Sinerva, Sirpa Heikura, Simo-Sakari Niemelä, Fırat Taşdemir, Johan Engström, Maria Raasakka, Sanna Upola, Rastislav Somora, Seo Jin Ahn, Ana-Maria Ovadiuc, Charles Tirkey, Saarah Choudhury, Benjamin Nwaneampeh, Joanna Ohenoja, Paavo Heinonen, Reijo Valta, Eero Österberg, Esa Puolakka, and Merja Vedenjuoksu.

S P A C E || Slow Moment
S P A C E || Helsinki
Alexis Jokela and Dipika Kohli collaborated at Atelier S P A C E | Kärsämäki to make a set of zines, which we are releasing 1 October as a 30-page PDF. S P A C E || Helsinki’s lead story is ‘Julia Set,’ based on a real life conversation with a mathematician from the University of Helsinki that DK bumped into on the first full day in Finland. From there, the conversation spaces go to the northern climes, and the stories that follow include Jokela’s ‘Michaela,’ (in both Finnish and English), and the team’s ‘Letting Go of Dead Things.’ Packed with photographs taken especially for the zine, through a parallel project called ‘Slow Moment’ in collaboration with guests of DK’s online community, S P A C E, this zine is the first highly collaborative piece from DK. That’s because it gathers ideas and people from both online forum-spaces and gets us talking together, then brings feelings and conversations from real life spaces into the writing, too, and combines these in an interactive connective framework from which the selections that go into the final zine are picked.
