F2F: New Media Art from Finland invites you on a tour of the unexplored worlds of digital art. The nine artists in the exhibition present future scenarios, question our consumption habits, and raise thoughts on our role in the social context of the contemporary information society.
The interactive installations of F2F take you face to face with the possibilities of the human - machine dialogue. Using cutting edge solutions of the new technologies, such as custom made computer software and movement sensors, the works represent modern Finland, a pioneer country of wired and wireless communications.
