The exhibition Outré: Encounters with non/living things showcases works from invited projects which were created fully or in part at the Biofilia Lab of Aalto University, where artists can cultivate inter-, cross-, trans-disciplinary research in dialogue with (citizen-) scientists and researchers from a range of fields.

Blck Vlvt: The V2 version
Blck Vlvt is an installation in which the audience experiences a hand-painted solar cell panel (mosaic) that interprets the colours and patterns of J. M. William Turner’s famous Snow-Storm - Steamboat Of Harbour... painting. In a dark space, then a reproduction of the Turner painting is faintly lit by an LED that is directly powered by the solar panel painting. A third piece is a video by Nina Pulkkis, shown on a monitor showing detailed observations of the making process.
The work is produced since 2017 by `Aamo artscience group´ that is composed of artist Bartaku (School of Arts, Design and Architecture), and scientists Janne Halme (School of Science), Paulo Pinho (School of Electrical Engineering) and Merja Penttilä (School of Chemical Engineering and VTT).
