At the ACM International Conference on Multimedia 2009 Media Lab researchers and artists are presenting their implementation of the multimedia artwork Alan01 / AlanOnline. The work wakes up the 1952 criminally convicted Alan Turing as a piece of code within the art work – thus fulfilling Turing’s own vision of preserving human consciousness in a computer.
Probably the most famous media artist in Finland, Marita Liulia, started her work in the Media Lab in the beginning of October. Marita Liulia is a versatile visual artist and a pioneer of interactive multimedia. Her production includes media art works, photography, painting and stage performances. Her works have been exhibited and performed in over 40 countries.
