MULTIPLEX: TransNatural #01
Technology enjoys playing the role of the awkward, shameless son of nature. Conversely nature behaves regularly as a tormented mother to the utmost, by means of implementing natural disasters and diseases to the child who will not listen. The 21st century is the century in which nature and technology will finally become viable partners.
For a long time, technology was the way to escape the restrictions of nature. Often technology also constituted a threat to nature. Today, the two apparent opposites increasingly merge to form a new reality. MULTIPLEX: Trans Natural # 01 offers young and old, a glimpse into this hybrid and rich new world of art, design, architecture, games and more.
In an exhibition lasting four weeks, the public will experience how artists and designers merge nature and technology. They range from jewellery based on artificially cultured bone, a game involving mud to growing stone in Venice to resolve the problem of the city's sinking foundations. It will be a search for what this new world will look like: are dealing with an evolutionary progress or above all, a changing perception about ourselves?
