Virtual Reality, Moving image, Music and Sound Art, Visual Arts
Invisible Forces is an exhibition that allows the public to take a look into the future of the Academy of Fine Arts through a virtual visit to the building that is currently being conctructed on Uniarts Helsinki’s Sörnäinen Campus. The immersive exhibition can be viewed with a VR headset or by watching a guided video tour.
The show presents digital works by the students and staff of the Academy of Fine Arts. The artworks displayed are the result of an open call organised at the Academy of Fine Arts in spring 2019, and in June 2020 a new sound work and an audio guide were added to the exhibition. All artworks have been particularly created for the virtual experience. They deal with concepts such as space and scale, reality and simulation, errors and glitches, relationships between humans and computers, and various transformations between materials and medias.
Artists featured in the virtual exhibition: Susanna Autio, Sara Blosseville, Cezár Kaci, Jaana Kähkönen, Ilai Elias Lehto, Suzanne Mooney, Johanna Sulalampi and Nils Titus Östbrant
