Surface of Electricity

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.

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.

Join bio-artist Stelarc for a presentation and follow-up discussion to explore what we have always been and what we have already become - zombies and cyborgs. 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.

Past Present Future: Sculpture Now

"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).

Winter Portraits / Danai Anagnostou

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

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
