Heli Konttinen is an artist who has wondered why we, as people, are the way we are- especially why negligence, selfishness and greed seem to trounce wisdom in the way we live.

This invitation postcard stems from her exhibitions Research Centre of Ordinary People carried out in Finland and Sweden in 2009 and 2010.
