V Art of Research conference was held on November 26-27 2014 at Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Helsinki, Finland

Involved in the contemporary discourse of practice-led research, the Art of Research Conference 2014 brought out the interactive and dynamic relationship between experience, materiality and articulation. How are different fields and media shaping these in novel ways through various methods, tools, and skills? How do research and practices operate from these relationships? Through these questions the main aim of the event was to engage in a shared exploration of bold and visionary thinking across different entangling practices.
