Since 2017, AYY has been actively building its art collection with works by students. In November 2022, AYY held an open call for the latest additions with the theme “Uncertainty”.

Seven works of art were selected for the art collection: Sija (Mirva Paastela 2022), Riitta (Sandra Prami 2020), Half Truths (Monika Hauck 2022), Anonymous Self-Pity Society (Anna Bernal 2022), Not To Be Reproduced (Carlos Daniel Perez Moreno 2022), Under the surface (Raisa Mäkinen 2022) and Untitled (Raisa Mäkinen 2022). Various materials and techniques have been used in the selected works, such as silk screen printing, digital printing, risography, low fire ceramics, wheel thrown and joined ceramics as well as performance.

‘Natural processes and mysteries have inspired the creation of my works. The works can be seen to reflect uncertainty, but in a comforting way, just as nature is uncertain. The works remind us that we cannot know or control everything’, says Raisa Mäkinen about her works Under the surface and Untitled.

The works were selected by a jury consisting of arts advisor Elham Rahmati, visual artist, curator, co-founder and co-editor of NO NIIN magazine; Iida Nurminen, representative of TOKYO; Tomas Kurenniemi, representative of Aalto University Student Union and Mana Tashakorini, member of the Committee on Artistic Activities. The jury reviewed 26 applications.

The works of art can be seen in the temporary exhibition space of the Museum of Student Life. The museum is located in Otaniemi at Jämeräntaival 3, and the museum can be visited during the opening hours on Sundays from 2 pm to 4 pm.
