Jussi Ängeslevä

Jussi Ängeslevä

Creative Director
ART+COM Studios

Professor Jussi Ängeslevä is a designer, an artist and an educator.

Having taught at the Berlin University of the Arts and Royal College of Arts in London, but lecturing around the planet, he is actively involved in the ever expanding field of new media, working with digital materiality and interaction design.

In parallel to the academic work, he has served as Creative Director at ART+COM Studios, where his work in public art commissions, exhibitions and installations are consistently yielding international recognition.

His independent works have been awarded by institutions such as Royal Society of Arts, NESTA, BAFTA, Art Directors Club of Europe, D&AD, Ars Electronica and ZKM. Over the years he has served in numerous international art and design juries, academic chairs and boards.

Throughout his career his focus has always been intentionally in between fields: combining understanding of visual, physical and interaction design with algorithmic, electronic and mechatronic knowledge to create innovative and elegant experiences.

His design ethos is leveraging hardware, software, physical and visual design in the search for elegance in spatial communication, where the meaning is inseparable from the medium communicating it.

 

Jussi Ängeslevä will be speaking at the Museum XR Summit 2024 :

Hybrid presence

Museum visits are inherently spatial experiences. How can we bring friends or colleagues along if they cannot physically join the visit? A research project between ART+COM and Natural history museum in Berlin developed a series of working prototypes to explore spatial presence in remote guided tours.
