Flux Island Application
Date: September 15-30, 2022
Location: Vuotalo, Mosaiikkitori 2, 00980 Helsinki
Deadline: May 16th, 2022

Open Call for interactive, immersive and generative media artworks.

A direct translation of the word 'Vuosaari', Flux Island combines the figurative and literal. Flux as in flow of people, ideas, electricity, water, etc. and flux as in the substance used when soldering. Flux Island is a collaboration between Aalto Media Lab, Ääniaalto and Vuotalo culminating in an exhibition, workshops, and audiovisual performances.

The theme for this year is “ECHO-systems”, to be understood as reflection of energies and pulses in an environment. Delays, different densities, changes in temperature and pressure might create illusions of ECHO-systems. Depending on the assemblages we make, we can enable interaction between each of these parts. How can we create ECHO-systems that highlight communication? How can different ECHO-systems function together enhancing sustainability? The theme could be freely shaped according to the participant’s own vision, inviting audiences to individually explore and create their own narrative hidden in these ECHO-systems.

Flux Island is happening in conjunction with the seventh edition of audiovisual festival ÄÄNIAALTO which will take place at Vuosali on September 2–3 and September 23–24 at Vapaan taiteen tila. The Open Call for Flux Island is available to students and alumni of the Aalto Media Lab. The exhibition will run from September 15–30th* at Vuotalo.

Aalto Media Lab at the Department of Media at Aalto University offers interdisciplinary studies in the design and production of new media, games, and sound. The mission of the Media Lab is to explore, discover, and comprehend digital technology and its impact on society.
