What if science and technology transcends humans? Will it make us less or more human? Can we change the future by speculating on it?
Creative researchers from the Leiden University Media Technology MSc program will imagineer new realities, blending art, science and technology into a thought provoking, disorienting mix of utopia and dystopia, hosted bij De Vrijplaats in Leiden.
This will not be a static expo, more a playful research space that mixes scientific approaches to art with creative approaches to science and research, for all audiences. The researchers work from personal inspiration and curiosity and create physical works to explore their concepts or engage the visitor to evoke ideas or questions. Many installations are interactive, some are early studies and prototypes, others will be more polished end products. And all will speculate on alternate futures that are yet to come, or that have already happened without you noticing. And all let you make your mind up yourself.
The creative researchers will be around to discuss the concepts, inspiration, ideas and methods behind their work, and even hack some more on the fly.
Friday June 3, 15:00 – 20:30
Saturday June 4, 12:00 – 17:00
Admission is free.

On Saturday the Vrijplaats will continue the theme of experimental electronics and art with home build synths, live loops and creative laptop use to bring you a night of pulsing beats and haunting soundscapes at our Night of the Modular Monster Synths. So by all means stay for our eetcafé and this nights entertainment!
