Beyond materials science: artist talk on material multiplicity

During the event, the audience will have a chance to familiarise itself with some of the conceptual ways of thinking about materials that inform the practice of Matthew C. Wilson, the Aalto University Artist in Residence. For Wilson, a material constitutes a multiplicity understood not only in terms of its structure and physical behavior, but also as a potential agent of histories, ideas, ideologies, values, and philosophies. Similarly, the mutability of materials through physical production processes occurs in relation to changing sociocultural processes that produce and mutate their meanings. We are looking forward to addressing those thoughts to the wider scientific community and initiate the discussion.

Bacterial bandages and recycled fibres: Aalto brings a materials revolution to Slush

New materials play an important role in sustainable development and combatting climate change. New uses for old materials can also be a major industrial opportunity: for example, the value of biomass from forests in Finland can be doubled if used for manufacturing products of higher added value.
