Knowledge-building activities in art and design can be characterized by a quest for a human approach to any topic. In this way, Aalto University bridges different areas, such as art, technology and business.
Our cultural approach focuses on experiences and both sensory and hands-on skills and knowledge.
At Aalto, artistic and design activities are closely linked to the research carried out in the technical fields: many of our art-based researchers do not focus on new technologies or their development, but rather on the use of technologies within art and other socio-cultural contexts.
In addition, art and design knowledge-building activities include technology-based actions related to systems design and sustainable development.
The Aalto Networking Platform brings together our researchers, practitioners and external parties for multidisciplinary collaboration in the area of arts and design knowledge building.
