Flux Island is an annual new media exhibition organized by students of the Department of Art and Media at Aalto University.

A direct translation of the word 'Vuosaari', Flux Island combines the figurative and literal.

Flux as in flow of people, ideas, electricity, water, etc. and flux as in the substance used when soldering. Flux Island is a collaboration between Aalto Media Lab, Ääniaalto and Vuotalo culminating in an exhibition, workshops, and audiovisual performances.

The theme for this year is “ECHO-systems”, to be understood as reflection of energies and pulses in an environment. Delays, different densities, changes in temperature and pressure might create illusions of ECHO-systems. Depending on the assemblages we make, we can enable interaction between each of these parts. How can we create ECHO-systems that highlight communication? How can different ECHO-systems function together enhancing sustainability? The theme could be freely shaped according to the participant’s own vision, inviting audiences to individually explore and create their own narrative hidden in these ECHO-systems.
