This exhibition explores the concept of the augmented self, engaging with the assumption that design and technology can be applied toward the betterment (advancement) of humanity and considers designers as change-makers and disruptors. The show interweaves art and design projects that focus on exploring and enhancing the human experience as it continually co-evolves alongside or intersects with intelligent machines.
Curated by Hala A Malak and Joelle Firzli
How can we create a constructive dialogue on human integration with technology and the future? How can design use technology to improve the safety and quality of the human body? How can technology contribute to building a more compassionate and improved body? How did humans and technology evolve and design around and for each other for the last century?
The exhibition is structured in three sections that raise questions focusing on the themes of Body, Senses, and Future.
Body: How is technology designed for and around our body? Does it act as an extension of our bodies? What influences can we trace?
Senses: How is technology enhancing our senses? How will that enhancement affect the way we see, hear, taste, smell and touch going forward?
Future: Will technology be part of our body norm? How do we imagine humans interacting with robots/machines? How is the future imagined?
