The exhibition shows four computer music compositions by Ville Pulkki from 1991–2018: three different versions of binary sequences, and one of the simplest fractals, Koch snowflake, mapped into music and visuals.
This exhibition presents works made by the students using microscopic lenses mounted to digital cameras, and images made with a confocal microscope (with the assistance of Jaakko Timonen, Assistant Professor of Physics).
The exhibition brings together works of students from Sonic Sculpture workshop at Aalto University of Arts, Design and Architecture. The works range from experimental instruments to different combinations of materials and forms creating sound. Experimental design and construction led to unique sculptural instruments.
The Surface of Electricity exhibition originates from the Electric Energy in the Arts course/Aalto/UWAS Gregoire Rousseau.
The space produced by the participants finds its form based on the relation between electricity and the sensible. Electricity can materialize into movement, audio waves and light signals. Each of these manifestation can be perceived by the body through touch, ears and eyes.
The Textile18 exhibition presents a wide range of textile design skills for students at the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. The curated exhibition highlights textile design from the perspectives of fashion, interior design, art and science.
As an exercise, an outdoor showroom was set up for the Old City Gulf of Helsinki. The exhibition consisted of individual, paved pavilions of about 30 square meters in size, free of terrain. The theme of each pavilion is the creepy sensation of the scene or the natural element, such as the view, sound, water, daylight rotation or vegetation. The Pavilion was placed in a freely agreed area. The pavilion had to be covered, and its surrounding environment was also covered and covered. The assignment was designed and implemented by casting groups of 4 to 5 people on a scale of 1:10.
“The body has already become a prosthetic body, augmented and increasingly automated. What it means to be human is perhaps not to remain human at all”. Presentation and follow-up discussion by Stelarc in Aalto University.
Contemporary sculpture exhibition by Aalto ARTS students from the Centre for General Studies elective course “Ways of making 2 / Metal & Wood Sculpture”
"Nowness is a dynamic relation between the past and the future. The present isn't present! It doesn't exist, at least not like that. No being lives in a now. The form of a thing, its appearance, is the past. The essence of a thing, its being, is the future."
(Timothy Morton: Humankind - Solidarity with Nonhuman People. p.78-79. 2017).
The exhibition is a result of a seminar focusing on rituals of commemoration as acts of actualisation. In collaborative processes we started to analyse the functioning and structure of hegemonic discourses and systems of representation.
“Everyone decided what the letters of VIP stand for in their own work. Our exhibition consists of unique glass objects made with different techniques. The main purpose of the course was to get to know the material and production technologies.” BA students in Design.
The exhibition puts forward a participatory approach to site-specficity within the Maarintie 8 building. The project began with a request to those working in the building: could they suggest a site of significance in the wider Uusimaa region? Significance could comprise diverse meanings: it could indicate a place that might be ingrained in their memory or routine, or a place of appreciation or aversion.
Sonic Sculpture involves the creation of objects which produce sound unified with the object's form itself, rather than having sound applied to them as a symbol or decoration. The students in this course studied various types of music instruments, Sound Art practices, and physical acoustics before fabricating their sculptures from wood, steel, rubber, electronics, and various found objects. Each work invites the audience to investigate a different side of our rich sonic world
