V Art of Research conference was held on November 26-27 2014 at Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Helsinki, Finland

Involved in the contemporary discourse of practice-led research, the Art of Research Conference 2014 brought 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 main aim of the event was to engage in a shared exploration of bold and visionary thinking across different entangling practices.

We would like to thank all participants, presenters and visitors and invite you to explore the event through the selection of papers, photo gallery (below) and keynote presentations.

This conference was the fifth in the Art of Research event series, the first of which took place in Helsinki 2005, and the second to be hosted by EMPIRICA, a research group based in the Department of Design, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Aalto University. The event is organized in collaboration with the University’s Department of Film, Television and Scenography, Handling Mind research project and the Finnish Association of Designers (ORNAMO) together with Association of Finnish Sculptors.
