The Green Revisited: Encountering Emerging Naturecultures (GREEN)

Two artists and a scientist will work together in the Aalto Biofilia: A Base for Biological Arts in the Aalto University, Finland for four-week-period.

Aalto University Residence I


This residency gives to two artists and a scientist an opportunity to realize artistic work in a fully equipped laboratory dedicated to bioart and meet the researchers and doctoral students of Aalto University and the Department of Art in the Aalto Otaniemi Campus.


Artistic work will reflect critically upon technical manipulation and exploitation of living systems, biological beings, other species, and/or the biosphere at large. The aim is to create artworks in relation to the explored themes.


During the residency the university will organize resident artist and scientist-led workshops for high school students. The artists and scientist in residence will plan and organize these workshops together with Junior personnel. In the final presentation the works by the artist and scientist collaborations as well as the outcomes of STEAM workshops will be showcased.
