beyond. CONNECTING

As humans we understand the theoretical idea of exponential growth. And yet, we have a really hard time to grasp its real impact on our own lives and our connections. How can we use technology to connect in new meaningful ways?

ACTING

AI and algorithms are modern tools built by humans. Most of the time, the results are useful. Sometimes they are funny. And sometimes they are scary. How can we use data in meaningful ways?

For over 4 decades technology has touched every element of our world. At the same time, our body hasn’t changed a bit. Or has it?

How can we use technology to transcend our existence?

beyond. SUSTAINING

The training of AI not only uses a lot of data. It also uses a lot of energy.

Time to ask ourselves honestly: How can we use technology to create a sustainable future?

Digitalization is leading the way to novel practices of collaboration. What does it truly mean to engage in “new”, “remote” and “project-based” work? How can we use technology to redefine the way we work?

beyond. EMOTIONAL LANDSCAPE

The "emotional landscape" is a multimedia research, that collects narratives around societal change and technology. Different perpectives will co-create a map, which helps everyone to better understand human needs. Be part of a bigger picture!

WORKING

technology &  

work

How can we use technology

to redefine the way we work?

Digitalization is leading the way to novel practices of collaboration. While this generates a lot of advantages, we need to be careful, too. What does it truly mean to engage in “new”, “remote” and “project-based” work? And how does this transformation make us feel?

To explore and scout out new edges on this territory, we will widen our perspectives. Based on a reflection of our emotions and individual needs - our hopes and doubts - we will ask ourselves: How can we use technology to redefine the way we work?

SUSTAINING

technology &  

sustainability

How can we use technology

to create a sustainable future?

The training of AI not only uses a lot of data. It also uses a lot of energy. While technology and its proper application hold the promise to improve our lives in the future, it also increases our global footprint. 

Time to take an honest look at the potential of technology and our own creativity regarding sustainability. Time to ask ourselves: How can we use technology to create a sustainable future? 

beyond.

EXCISTING

technology &  

human body

How can we use technology

to transcend our existence?

For over four decades the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit has doubled every two years. The software and hardware at our hands is constantly being increased in its performance, leading to evermore powerful applications. 
At the same time, our body hasn’t changed a bit. Or has it?

 

What’s the impact of modern technological tools on the human body and how should we use it to our advantage?
 

Let us experience the inter-section of technological humans and humane technology by asking ourselves: How can we use technology to transcend our existence? 

beyond.

ACTING

big data &  

ethical responsibility

How can we use data

in new meaningful ways?

AI and algorithms are modern tools built by humans. Most of the time, the results are useful. Sometimes they are funny. And sometimes they are scary.

Regardless of how we perceive these new technologies, we need to develop a basic understanding of how they work and how all of us can put them to good use. With upcoming reports on the growing influence of data-driven technologies, we need to retrain and regain our sense of agency and active collaboration.

Let’s shine a light on values, our feelings and values in a data-driven world and ask ourselves this question.

We will go through this interactive expierience with warm data labs

CONNECTING

expotenial growth & connectivity 

How can we use technology to   

connect in new meaningful ways?

As humans we understand the theoretical idea of exponential growth. And yet, we have a really hard time to grasp its real impact on our own lives. Meanwhile, an exponential development called digitization has redefined our daily routines including the ways we connect and interact with each other. While this development can feel overwhelming at times, it also allows us to explore new ways of human connectedness.Together we will reflect on the idea of exponential development and how it makes us feel. Let's broaden our perspective on technology.
