Consumption of energy evades our perception and is therefore largely detached from our emotive selves. The MDNM project aims to generate a multidisciplinary platform for artists, designers and researchers within Aalto University, to create new connections between media, energy and emotions. With an emphasis on the emotions induced by interactions in everyday life, this project aims to explore the relation between the design of objects, the use of electricity, and our perceptions and responses towards their interplay. We call for students from varied backgrounds to explore different solutions, concepts and manifestations for this topic.
