As You May Sense – Environment, Data, Contamination group exhibition

As part of Helsinki Biennial 2023, Jussi Parikka and Samir Bhowmik were tasked to develop an artistic research studio that addresses relevant methods for the affective and sensed datascapes of the city and the broader region, including the Finnish Gulf. The exhibition is also part of Uniarts Helsinki’s Research Pavilion.

Data is inscribed on material surfaces, it exists across bodies from human skin to water; it can be heard as it can be performed. As sensing, this realm of environmental data becomes a practice that can be teased out with artistic methods. 

The exhibition features artists studying at the University of the Arts Helsinki who responded to the brief given as part of the course Environment, Data, and Contamination which was run by Samir Bhowmik and Jussi Parikka.
