The media art exhibition Warehouse Tech 15.-29.5.2013

When: May 15-29, 2013
Where: L3 Gallery, Tyynenmerenkatu 6, Jätkäsaari (tram 9)
Opening Hours: Tue-Sun 12-18

The pilot programme Art & Technology that started in fall 2012 brings together a group of talented students from within Aalto University to test their skills and experiment in the multidisciplinary field of media art, combining technology, art and design. The result of this experiment will be showcased in the Warehouse Tech exhibition that presents media and electronic art over two weeks in L3 Gallery, in Jätkäsaari.

The emphasis of the Art and Tehcnology pilot programme is on interactive artworks that are either spatial, embodied, or mobile. Some themes are interactive installations, experimental user interfaces, wearable electronics and ubiquitous technology. The programme combines media thinking and practice with the aesthetic and philosophical foundations of visual arts. Students are encouraged to cross boundaries between art, technology, and design.

A wide variety of working methods have been used, such as a study of ‘fugly’ phenomena on the Internet, and the recording of personal everyday data, to EEG brain scans controlling non-newtonian liquids. The exhibition is sure to bring surprise and delight to all visitors!

The minor study programme Art and Technology is organised as a multi-disciplinary collaboration within Aalto University. The organising units are Department of Art, Department of Media Technology, Department of Media, and Media Factory. The Media Art Installation course is led by Media Artists Andy Best and Matti Niinimäki.

The opening of the exhibition is on May 14th at 18:00. Welcome!
