This philosophy is discussed based on reflections of an on-going socially engaged project titled Invisible Neighbours, carried out in Helsinki (“Sörnäinen”) prison, Helsinki, Finland and its neighbourhood that began in the year 2014 in collaboration with artist Annika Niskanen. This research is supported by theoretical framework and situated in a contemporary artistic practice. Basic concepts discussed within are the impact of prisons in general and the meaning and of a prison in the city. The phenomenon of presence as a process of interpersonal communication and its political impact is examined. The focus is given to the practices of the everyday.
