M8 Art Space

M8 Art Space was initiated in 2016 to introduce artistic research into the thinking and making environment of electrical engineering at Aalto University. It does this by operating a platform for screen-based works by artists working with subjects connected to developments in electrical engineering. The four channel screen programme is located in the atrium of the Maarintie 8 building and is curated by Edel O' Reilly.
