UWAS Experiments, spring 2018 (Dipoli, Otaniemi)
UWAS EXPERIMENTS is a processual exhibition that unfolds gradually during the two weeks it is open. Initially the exhibition is an invitation, a possibility to see what art-based transdisciplinary education can look like and how it is developed further.
UWAS is an artistic and educational experiment in Aalto University. By offering all students a possibility to engage in transdisciplinary art and design education, it aims at rethinking what learning and teaching could be in universities today and tomorrow.
The exhibition offers a series of vignettes into the different facets of UWAS. Like UWAS itself, the exhibition is a work-in-progress, an opportunity to make and remake connections between ways of knowing, thinking, and doing. As such, it is an invitation to generate new thoughts and attitudes concerning art, design, and education in Aalto University and beyond.
The exhibition includes student works from the following UWAS courses:

UWAS-C0015 Visualized Me: Creative Ways of Thinking and Using Visual Tools (Teacher: Laura Isoniemi)
