ROOM 1: RELATIONSHIPS WITH AND WITHIN NATURE

Andrea Ling’s work revolves around designing responsive skins informed by material ecology-centered design research. Kissaleva approaches her work as a scientist, exploring the hypotheses that plants can communicate amongst themselves.

ROOM 2: AI AND THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE

Two artists that delve into how AI affects our experience of our environments - urban or natural - on a sensory, visual and intellectual level. Anadol’s groundbreaking audio-visual art turns Kraftwerk Berlin into an ecosystem of synesthetic interactions by utilizing a cutting-edge deep learning algorithm. Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg examines our fraught relationships with nature and technology by using emerging technologies in dialogue with scientists and experts.

ROOM 3: ENGAGING WITH THE PAST

What can we learn from, and how do we engage with the past? Brandon Clifford identifies contemporary blind-spots by mining ancient knowledge that holds resonance with topics of today and holds possible solutions to our most pressing problems. Nora Al Badri’s unique work joining art, AI, and cultural heritage uses advanced technology to generate new synthetic Babylonian objects based on ancestral ones, taking back and re-possessing cultural datasets from colonial Western museum collections.

ROOM 4: HUMAN-TECHNOLOGY COLLABORATION

Sougwen Chung’s work explores the mark-made-by-hand and the mark-made-by-machine as an approach to understanding the dynamics of humans and systems. Harry Yeff works at the intersection of voice, technology and performance and highlights the fundamental role of human voice: not only as a tool for communication, but also for our connection with technology and the world.

ROOM 5: ART MEETS SCIENCE TO ADDRESS GENDER AND INEQUALITY

Charlotte Jarvis aims to rewrite a cultural narrative in which semen has been revered as magical substance: A totem of literal and symbolic gendered potency. She uses art and science to disrupt patriarchy by making semen from “female” cells. Chow and Lin’s ‘Poverty Line’ visually documents different standards and quality of life around the world, highlighting how economy regulates life.
