Aalto Media Lab

Aalto Media Lab

The Media Lab was founded in 1994 and is now a part of the Department of Media at the School of Arts, Design and Architecture of the Aalto University.

The mission of the Media Lab is to explore, discover and comprehend the new digital technology and its impact in society; to find and exploit the possibilities it opens to communication, interaction and expression and to evaluate, understand and deal with the challenges it poses to design and creative production.

Media Lab Demo Days
