The immersive exhibition takes place in the future building of the academy that one can visit through a VR headset.

Invisible Forces exhibition presents digital works by the students and staff of the Academy of Fine Arts. The building itself is still under construction but with the help of digital technology it has already been taken over by a group of artists. The art works displayed are the result of an open call organized in the Academy of Fine Arts in spring 2019 and they are realized especially for the virtual reality experience. The art works deal with the concepts of visual art such as space and scale, reality and simulation, errors, glitches and various transformations between materials.

Artists included in the exhibition: Susanna Autio, Sara Blosseville, Cezár Kaci, Jaana Kähkönen, Ilai Lehto, Suzanne Mooney and Nils Östbrant Project coordination and curatorship: Marko Backman, Tuomo Rainio, Mireia C. Saladrigues ja Aleksi Salminen Technical production: Marko Backman, Roberto Pugliese and Tuomo Rainio 3D models: Marko Backman and JKMM Special thanks: Annet Dekker, Jaana Ristola ja Marko Vuokola
