Cross Waves is a sea state that occurs when two or more nonparallel wave systems meet. The waves generated by this phenomenon are dangerous to swimmers, boats, and ships caught between the crossing waves.

Cross Waves is also the name of the Spring exhibition of Aalto Media Lab students. It is an exhibition that presents interactive artworks that have been created in the meeting point of art and technology.

Ristiaallokko | Cross Waves exhibition is the outcome of the Interactive Art course at the Aalto Media Lab at Aalto University. The aim of the course is to explore the notion of interaction within the context of new media art.


The Window


“The Window” is a new media art installation project that tries to imitate and expand upon the simple common experience of perspective – the line-of-sight of a viewer's vision. The artwork tries to evoke the sense of peering through an orifice, such as a port-hole or a window, and how what is seen through it moves or changes based on the perspective from which it is being viewed.
