The Aalto Media Lab’s 20th Anniversary Exhibition in the LUME Centre opened this evening. It was a great opportunity to view and interact with projects that students and professors have created over the past 20 years. Exhibit pieces ranged from animated gif generators to interactive educational games and every piece showcased a different way that creative scholars have used technology for communication, artistic expression, learning, or design. I particularly enjoyed an interactive touchscreen displaying a digital facsimile of a map of Mexico from 1550 created by the Systems of Representation group under the direction of my advisor, Lily Diaz.
