Joonas Hyvönen – WET PLANET

Future visions often seem to divide either into dystopic end of the world scenarios or techological utopias. In Wet Planet group of youngsters live through a contradictory combination of these two possibilities in a world where rising seas have taken away traditional, safe environment but quickly developed technology has provided new kinds of possibilities. The exhibition focuses on imagining what kind of youth cultures this new world could made possible and what kind of stories are being told in there.

Joonas Hyvönen (b. 1990) lives and works in Helsinki. Joonas Hyvönen’s art concentrates on topics surrounding digital technology in relation to other contemporary phenomena, specifically focusing on the interaction between user and the user interface.
