Miia Rinne

A806 Department of Art and Media

Miia Rinne is a media artist, and she has been working as university teacher at the Department of Art, Aalto University since autumn 2015. She has MA degrees from the University of Art and Design Helsinki and the Academy of Fine Arts Helsinki. She works mostly with moving image and installation. 

To her art is a medium of wondering about what human mind is. It interests her how the mind builds up throughout life and upon what previous generations pass on to us. She is fascinated with tacit knowledge, that is the great deal of intuitive, bodily and experiential knowledge the mind is unaware of. She likes to dig into past and archives, and mix older and more recent material with each other.
