MDNM Project: A Workshop on The Media of Energy and Emotions

27 August 2012

(Call for Aalto students)

Consumption of energy evades our perception and is therefore largely detached from our emotive selves. With an emphasis on the emotions induced by interactions in everyday life, MDNM 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.

How can you participate?

MDNM project consist of a two-week long multidisciplinary workshop in October-November, during which students design and implement functional concepts on the topic. The workshop is followed by an expert seminar and an exhibition of the student concepts, held within Aalto ARTS premises at Arabia, Helsinki. The project is organized in collaboration with Aalto Media Factory, Creative Sustainability Master’s Program (4 ECTS), and in connection with the World Design Capital year as well as to the forthcoming Nordic Climate Day on November 11th, 2012.
