The Art of Research V

The Art of Research V

Experience - Materiality - Articulation

26-27 November 2014 at Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Helsinki, Finland

The fifth international The Art of Research conference is organized by Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture in 26-27 November 2014. The topic of the conference is artistic research in the field of art and design. In addition to conference presentations, it includes several exhibitions that are displayed around Arabia campus. In year 2014 the special theme for the conference is ceramics. The event is connected to the Ceramics and space – Finnish Ceramic Art –exhibition that takes place concurrently at Design museum, Helsinki. The event is organized by the Department of Design in collaboration with the Department of Film, Television and Scenography, Handling Mind research project and the Finnish Association of Designers (ORNAMO) together with Association of Finnish Sculptors.

Over the past two decades, a continuous dialogue and fruitful convergence between art and design related practices and research has been explored in the academic institutions. Involved in the contemporary discourse of practice-led research, the Art of Research Conference 2014 brings out the interactive and dynamic relationship between experience, materiality and articulation. How are different fields and media shaping these in novel ways through various methods, tools, and skills? How do research and practices operate from these relationships? Through these questions the aim of the event is to engage in a shared exploration of bold and visionary thinking across different entangling practices.

The Conference aims at sharing an understanding of the ontological, epistemological and methodological issues of practice-led research, and offers an academic framework for discussing notions of experience, materiality and articulation. Based on the double-blind review process we have selected 26 papers and 9 related works to be presented at the conference. The final program will be available in our webpage October 22.
