Common Domain, a new interactive installation by Kalle Rasinkangas premieres at the Finnish National Opera in August, 2020. In collaboration with the Opera Beyond, Nokia Bell Labs, the world-renowned industrial research arm of Nokia, is launching its first ever artist-in-residence programme in the Nordic countries, with Kalle as the region’s first guest artist.
The Opera Beyond conference on May 25th-26th, 2020 has been cancelled due to concerns raised by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The customers that have already purchased their ticket to the conference, will receive a full compensation for their ticket. The Opera Beyond team will contact all customers individually.
Opera Beyond has prompted the multiple Nobel-award winning Nokia Bell Labs to expand its collaboration base in Finland. The collaboration is part of Nokia Bell Labs’ Experiments in Arts and Technology (E.A.T.) lab, in which artists and Nokia Bell Labs engineers and scientists combine their efforts to discover new possibilities in human communication and connection.
