August denotes the a start of yet another new academic year and for me it meant one big change in particular: I started my new job as an Aalto Research Fellow at the Transdisciplinary Arts Studies unit (TAS, prev. YoYo) at the Aalto University's School of Arts, Design and Architecture (Aalto ARTS). Looking forward to working with the great team led by Prof. Christopher Bratton and teaching aesthetics as well as continuing my work on environmental and urban aesthetics.
I will be teaching an MA level seminar at Aalto University for the first time this autumn. My course Environmental Thinking, Aesthetics and Art will focus on the aesthetic understanding of the relation that we have with our environment.
