3D-SYMPOSIUM 2016 BEYOND: Designing for the Future
In the coming decades, new technologies will change our lives and the way in which we perceive them in hitherto unimaginable ways. The Future Design Symposium is a creative collusion of science, technology and art – an experimental laboratory for new art forms and perspectives on the social impact of technologies within Europe.
Future Design explores the future of digital technology from atoms to bits and from bits back to atoms again, highlighting the ways in which these technologies are adapted in different cultural contexts. The chief objective is to attract widespread attention to these technologies, to generate debates and interest in their use among independent artists and otherwise under-represented groups.
Future Design provides new and critical views on imagination and new insights into reality. In view of the risks and possible collateral damage connected to these new technologies, scientist and artist must make a stand for their values, and do so by openly discussing the potential and risks, and by formulating a vision for EUROPE and BEYOND.
