Two unique exhibitions by Aalto University at the Oodi Library to experience and play
The exhibitions will take place within the immersive walls of the Kuutio space on the second floor of Oodi with its smart glass walls giving even more dimension to the exhibits.
First up will be Interactive Diorama - Rembrandt 1632, by Professor Lily Diaz-Kommonen and her team. It’s a virtual reality simulation that takes the visitor deep into a painting by Rembrandt from the 1600s, transcending the 3D dimension. The artwork has been converted into an interactive diorama of what was reputedly the first meeting of its kind at the Barber’s Surgeon Guild of Amsterdam in 1632. The anatomy lesson was to become a kind of spectacle for the public to attend, and in this experience, you are the subject, and all from the safety of your own reality.
The Kuutio space barely has a chance to breathe before Games, Art and Science sets up. The exhibition is curated by executive in residence, Annakaisa Kultima, and it’s a chance for Aalto students and researchers, in collaboration with artists and scientists from Finland and abroad, to show everyone what they’ve been up to of recent. The games: Global Warning, Sky Beneath, Hamsterwave, Plusminus, Quantum Garden will showcase the intersection of art and science in wildly different ways.
Interactive Diorama - Rembrandt 1632 will be open at the Oodi Library (Kuutio space) between 9-19th September, 12-19 open every day. There is also a chance to meet the makers on Tuesday 10th Sep, 11-12
Games, Art and Science will be open at the Oodi Library (Kuutio space) between 20-29th September. There is also a chance to meet the makers on Friday 20th Sep, 11-12
Both events are free of charge
