The Act of Constructing (2016) – The thesis of Finnish photographer Nita Vera explores the ideas behind the Brechtian theatre and how it might help finding tools to break the fourth wall in photography – in other words – to make the spectator active and not just a passive viewer.
The Rise of the Next Human (2015) – The Rise of the Next Human is an explorative bachelor thesis about the development of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence and its effect on modern society.
