Photographic exhibitions are most often presented us as prints inside a gallery space. Backlight Photo Festival made an exception this year by introducing part of the exhibition as an outdoor screening. Selection of the exhibition works were taken around the Pirkanmaa region and projected on walls of buildings. This way the exhibition reached a new audience. Backlight Screening was also a good way to promote the main exhibition.

Chiara Boeri, the distinguished Italian Media Artist, really took our Media students yesterday. Here you can read post by two of them:
Today we had a lecture with Chiara Boeri, well known in the community of media artists all over the world, with work experience in Hollywood, Great Britain, France and Italy (to mention a few). Besides big projects she is undertaking, she is also a lecturer at UAS in Torino, teaching students about the art of integrating today's modern technology of computers and graphics into the old art of film making.

If you walked anywhere near Sorsapuisto last weekend you must have wondered why a huge bunch of strangely dressed people were surrounding the Tampere hall. The answer is very simple: Tracon VI had taken over! The sixth annual role-playing game and anime/manga convention with an average of 3500 visitors brought together people from all around Finland and the other far corners of the world. This year the Guests of Honor were Yoshihiro Takahashi (the maker of "Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin" manga, in English "Silver Fang: Shooting Star (or Meteor) Silve"), Mike Pohjola (a Finnish author and game designer) and Janne Kemppi (a long-term lecturer and entertainer in Finnish conventions, focusing on RPG, anime and manga). Right from the beginning everybody knew this was going to be the best Tracon yet!
