AKU MERILÄINEN

Media Artist. Scenographer. Maker. M.A. #TheInternetOfPlaces

The Internet of Places is one form of my art. It takes place when space, projections, social media content and AI blend together producing unexpected meanings and experiences.

 

Nevertheless – The Internet of Places is not my only output.

It's just one starting point for electrifying thinking.
