  • ORIGINS 10.6.–20.8.2022

    When we think of origins, what comes to mind? The brief for the course Product Design in Ceramics asked students to design and produce an artifact reflecting on origins that included a traditional ceramics manufacturing technique (e.g. pinching, coiling, slabbing, throwing, slip casting) as well as a 3D-printed method (delta print extrusion or stereolithography). Students explored the idea of origins from different perspectives ranging from cultural and ethnic origins to personal histories, to the origins of humanity, Earth, and the universe.

  • Valon muotoja – Forms of Light 10.6.–20.8.2022

    Experimental light installations and lamps made out of concrete

    Heavy, big, ugly, rough, vague, grey, hard… These are often the first attributes we relate to concrete. The design students from Aalto University’s School of Arts, Design and Architecture are challenging these established conventions of concrete as material by trying to combine concrete and light.

  • Vapaa Taidekoulu – Puutarha 10.6.–20.8.2022

    Vapaa Taidekoulu’s group exhibition Puutarha presents garden-related works by school’s second-, third-, and fourth-year students. Vapaa Taidekoulu located in Helsinki offers professional studies in painting.

    The garden is full of surprises. Earthworms crumbling under the leaves. Water lizard after rain. A badger who met me.
