(Μ)future equals (τ)technology times (φ)fantasy squared
Making the future with dreams and materials of the past.
An exhibition that is inspired by, reflects, ponders and comments on the relationship between imagination, technology and the future.
It aspires to showcase the importance of imagination as a decisive factor of shaping tomorrow.
The exhibition comments on the relationship between science fiction and reality.
It takes us to other worlds.
It is inspired by this journey that has just begun.
It experiments and searches for the relationship between art and technology.
It wonders and puzzles over technology’s relationship with the humans.
The transformation of our environment and us all by the technology.
The limits of one’s own intellect and life itself, for the first time in our history are so vague.
The exhibition tries to communicate with images, sounds and music.
It is based on constructions made out of industrial objects that mutate into something other than what they were made for, they acquire another function and purpose, but at the same time they keep their basic characteristics.
Objects of the past, full of nostalgia, are combined to form unexpected combinations and awaken memories of a time when the development of our technology allowed us to imagine and adore a brilliant and wonderful future.
A future that is now past.
